sharing of materials


I am still quite new to 'any answers' and was wondering how the sharing of information works. I have read a few posts that are of interest to me and have noticed that people are offering their contact details for the asker to gain further information/materials, do people generally mind if someone other than the asker requests their materials? I only ask as I was about to post a question about managing change and noticed a question was posted last week along the same lines, so rather than posting another question would it be rude to then contact the people who have offered materials?

  1. Think that was me
    Hi lg

    I responded to a post last week about managing change and yes, I was contacted off-line by quite a few people who requested the same details.

    I personally don’t mind that. So if you would like the materials offered, contact me direct and I will send them to you.



  2. Yes by all means
    Hullo Ig. From time to time I respond to queries and offer materials etc. I would be happy for others to contact me if they want to see these – as indeed often happens.

    With regard to the site norms, there are grey areas; for example in principle respondents are encouraged to say a bit more than “I have some materials/courses I can send you” – ie to give at least a flavour or summary of the content thereof.

    Occasionally I find the actual questions a bit doubtful. Recently there was one which in effect was “have you seen a marvellous report – hyperlink – about my brilliant consultancy company?” This hardly seemed a question within the spirit of the site! It was removed from the site after a few days.

  3. No one minds!
    I’ve contacted serveral peoople to ask for information they talked about in someone else’s answer. In my experience they have been only to pleased to help. Likewise I have been conatced before about information that I have posted and have happily passed on whatever I have.
    The training community on this site are extrordinary in their willingness to share information, and especially when I first started I was amazed how generous people were with their work and time, and i still don’t take it for granted.

    All the best of luck!
