Asking a question on the Beginner Help forum doesn't waste anyone's time, but responding with something less than an answer does.

Buttons on the back of the K-3 get bumped. I switch mine into the White Balance screen with my nose. Now that you know where Multiple Exposure is, post some artistic shots.

+1 ^ He could have read that manual cover to cover and not figured out why that double exposure happened. It's bad enough the response was overtly rude and offensive, it was completely useless to help OP and insulted him for even asking the question. On the forum I moderate that post would have been deleted and gotten him a written infraction.

Wow. The only written infractions I've gotten here were for calling someone a troll...

I really don't think telling someone to RTFM is an offense worthy of suspension. Warning or points? Only if it was done in a rude manner.

if saying RTFM is offensive or telling someone that there are such things as stupid questions and that maybe, just maybe you should know the tool that you are going to use beforehand than i am guilty!
Yes it is offensive, when someone kindly asks for assistance. If you feel any threads/questions are not warranted for any replies except sarcasm, then simply skip that thread/question and move on; rather than trying to make the OP and others feel stupid; because they don't do things your way.

Kindness & respect go a long way towards others!

....ok...you promote laziness, i get that. But i don't, telling someone that maybe they should have looked for the answer by them selves rather than asking someone to solve they're problems and taking the easy way it is not serving them good at all. It does more harm than good.
This question might not of been solved reading a manual!!!

No! I promote respect & kindness on this site towards other members!

It's very sad that you have chosen to disrupt a thread with disrespect & a know-it-all attitude.

Same here; very sad indeed.

To the OP; regardless of one member trying to disrupt your thread, don't be hesitant to ask any questions in the future; there are many members that will respond kindly & try to assist.

Are you kidding me? What's after page 59 in your manual?
Page 60?

I'm quite certain this will be a much more cordial thread from this point forward.
