Pain points for designers in 2018?

    I'm thinking of building a product that figures out designers pain points. Would you like to pay money?

      Hmmmm ... the premise is a little vague, @Dan.

      This is unhelpful. You can see that English is probably not this guy's first language and he's come here with a genuine question that's worded unconventionally (maybe even abrasively). Suggesting a better way to ask the question would be nice, but even a straight "No" would be more helpful than this.

        What's wrong in the question? Can you explain? I can learn as well :)

          I want to create some service...

          We generally would say something more like "I want to create a service...". Or maybe even better would be "I'm interested in creating a service..." to express that it's more than just a desire, but something I'm actually pursuing.

          ...But I was stuck with good idea.

          This statement, taken literally, means that you already have a good idea, but you haven't been able to get rid of your good idea. Maybe what you mean to say is "...But I haven't been able to find good ideas", or "...But I've only been able to think of bad ideas". or "...But I'm looking for ideas".

          What is the biggest pain points right now?

          This question is pretty clear, but the "is" should be "are" instead, because you're asking about more than one pain point.

          Would you like to pay money for solving this pain?

          This question also is clear, but should be written "Would you like to pay money to have this pain resolved?". The real problem with this sentence is that it sounds funny and strange because paying money is generally not something people like to do. It's kind of like asking "Would you like to go to the dentist for eating this candy?" Probably the best way to ask this question would be to simply remove the word "like" and ask "Would you pay money to have this problem solved?"

          The overall issue with your question here is that some people feel like you're being lazy by asking a question that you should be working to answer yourself. I think the real problem is that you haven't worded your question properly in order to get the answers that you're looking for.

          Learning languages is very hard and a lot of work. Clearly you've made a lot of progress, but you still have some more to go. Don't give up.
