Most Helpful Guy
I have a set of personal guidelines for questions on this site:
1) If it's an anonymous poster who wrote a massive wall of text in the description then I'm not even bothering.
2) If it's an visible user who wrote a massive wall of text, then I'll decide whether to bother based on the subject matter or if the first three sentences are good enough to entice me to read further.
3) If it's someone I know who wrote a wall of text, I'm reading it all.
But if the description is still long but structured nicely, then the likelihood of me reading it will be based on them, again, being anonymous, visible or known.1

It's often that it's pretty much all on the title and the details are just them ranting or giving a story I already predicted when I saw the title.
I only come across a question that actually is genuinely being asked because they have no idea what to do at least once a month. Most are just "I already know, I just want to brag" sort of thing. But I've read/heard from somewhere that sometimes people can't see what is right in front of them.
I have written a few questions on here in draft... but often when I read what I have written before submitting, I usually figure it out and end up just deleting it.
I found I often have to have it written out for me to see the picture of my situations more clearly :)1
