That's why I said that it's also important to provide proof that what you are saying is accurate and true. There are currently too many people answering questions where their answer would be a thousand times better if they provided proof to back it up (and then later they wonder why the thread starter didn't listen to them).
So again: the more proof that you can provide to show that what you are saying is true, the better. Some might think that it's possible to just relax and rely on a large rep count to do the talking, but I would strongly disagree with that.
For example: when someone asks if a certain power supply can handle a certain build, I provide my answer along with all the proof that I can find so that I'm not just simply saying "yes" or "no". There are currently way too many people just going "Yep, it will be fine"
, or "no, you need more."
without saying anything else. Although, this is just one small example taken from just one forum on this message board.
