kyle, to me it depends on the particular question as well as the number of queries overall. Sometimes you hit, sometimes you miss. That's okay. But since you ask ...
Your most recent one I thought was well observed and did indeed yield several interesting comments. If in later life when people can travel again, I should ever need a slang word for McDonald's in German, I will know where to find it. (-:Siehe auch: Mäckes
This other previous thread, though, was annoying in a way that reminded me of your queries years ago, when you seemed to assume you could learn German without ever taking the trouble to study grammar and vocabulary, to use textbooks and dictionaries, like every other person who has ever learned a foreign language well.Siehe auch: gelungen v gelangt
In this recent instance, again, you seemed to have just confused two similar verbs, precisely because of your unorthodox method. You wouldn't have even needed to ask the question if you had just consulted a good bilingual dictionary in the first place, and learned the two verbs separately.
I think that's when people in the forum become impatient -- when they get the impression that you're trying to avoid the steps that all of them have already been through, because basically, there are some things you just have to study. That attitude has seemed arrogant at times.
On the other hand, your German does seem to have improved, somehow. So maybe if you live in Germany, you're picking up enough to get by. If you now know enough to pick up on slang expressions, maybe that method does work for your purposes.
I do think it bugs people a little when you try to ask in German and still make mistakes. Many people here are perfectionists, by profession or temperament, so it hurts their eyes to see errors that could have been corrected. The tradition in this forum is that the place to practice is the Crossover Chat. But it's only a tradition, not an absolute rule. So maybe, just be aware that writing imperfect German may annoy people, but you can do it if you want to.
In any case, thank you for asking. I do think it helps when you ask people how you come across, because then you can decide whether you might want to adjust your approach a little, or not. Maybe that's working better over time for you too. (-:
