Do not post "Try this:"-answers. Rather write "That's because ..."-answers.
"Try this:"-answers are either lies, because the answerer knows what it/she/he posted is working, but misuses the word "try"; or they indicate inprecision or lazyness on the answerer side. However, they always indicate a lack of empathy and foresight.
The hints may or may not work, but usually only help for the moment, but not in the future, when the questioner asks a related question she or he doesn't even recognize as related.
