A word to any community member, especially the (should know better) partners.to issues that reate to communication between the facer phone and watch app.
If your first response is to kill it all with fire and try again. Please don’t post yet.It should never come to that outside of very extreme cicumstanceses. I’ts just nt how aps work these days.
These are last response, not first reaponse posts.
Especially, no partner name mentiened if it was a 4-5 year old image of nuke steps involving the Gear app for android.Possibly even native Android optiond that no longer are where the instructions said.
If your ‘Kill it all with fire and start again’ mesage is up to date then please keep it so, and handy for those that might need it.
Meaining, when everyone else is eeing puupies and rainbows but a slim few.
Nuke it and rebuild should never be the first post on a watch/phone app thread, let alone one that might have been as relevent as fixing hairdriers. Or even wors, wasted a newer person’s time looking for Gear.
Top Rule: If you are going to be first ro respond to someone’s issues with the apps make sure you are one of the ones who have had them and know, or have historically pay ttentiion.
I am sorry that you do not consider my advice on how to solve phone / watch problems to be the best - I very rarely have issues in that regard so I am not aware of how else to solve the problems. Having said that in the past two weeks I have had two issues with communication; one between my phone and an old Android Wear watch and another with my Galaxy watch. In both cases, deleting and re-installing the the apps on my phone and watch instantly solved the problem so, with respect, I will continue to give the best advice that I know how to give.
Certainly, if you have a better method for solving these problems then I’m sure the community would appreciate you writing down the steps to follow.
@rob.fisk All members here need to be treated with respect. Partners have always tried to help. You can take their advice or leave it. That is what a community forum is for. Criticizing the help offered usually results in a someone’s ceasing to participate here because their posts have been met with rudeness. That has a ripple effect as well. Posts from others who might want to contribute constructive comments will stop. When I joined here a few years ago, Facer Partners were very active. I’ve watched that participation dwindle. Perhaps I know why.
Well said Linlay, it’s one of the reasons I take breaks too.
By the way @mikeoday I’m loving the look of the latest Faces you’ve been posting on Facebook, they’re exceptionally well crafted. Can’t wear one though sorry, I’m just a free user.
Thanks but I think you might be confusing me with mikeob ( @trazzoarq ) - I’m the handsome one
My bad sorry, it was @trazzoarq You have some nice Faces too though, despite a lot of them being Apple lately
Sorry, I never intended to be disrespectful to anyone, just to point out that it’s worth holding off on the nuke it from orbit approach untill investigation and specific solution has been tried.
Also, that when given the instructions should at least be correct.
I sometimes come across much harsher than intended so, again, apologies.
You need to be nice in here Rob. I’m the Antisocial one around here and don’t you forget it. Honestly you would be surprised the number of times I will self-correct myself when commenting on something just because I think it might come off the wrong way. Other times I just give up and don’t post any comment at all. So, the next time you don’t see a comment on here, it’s probably me.
I left the original up as an example of how not to let a best practices suggestion become a rant. My shame is there for all to see.
Like I’ve been told for years, “If you can’t be a good example, you can aways be a dire warning to others”.
