[closed] how come I never get answers (23 posts)

    I put the simplest - or so it seems - of questions on this forum and I don't get any replies. What am I doing wrong? Should I login under another name perhaps?

    My latest question is 'unable to login to blog site' it went to the second page and would have remained unanswered just like everything else I have asked here. If backup is not available then that's a huge disadvantage for wp.

    Sorry to go on but my latest question cannot be too difficult to answer.

    Is that the exact and only error you get?

    I see a lot of question which amount to "It doesn't work", without giving much in details for us to work with.

    There are a lot of questions being posted in the forum and the amount of people and time to answer those is limited.
    If I therefore have to choose between answering a question with enough info to solve his/her problem or first having to try to get the info at all, I'll choose the first any time.

    Please note that this isn't a personal attack against you and I've replied to your other topic to try and help you, but I hope other people will read this as well and improve the information they provide with the questions they have, so we can help them. Because we do want to help.

    What backup?

    And don't worry about your posts going to the "second page". MOst helpers come in and hit the Unanswered topics view and start replying. Bumping it - just removes it from the queue and nobody takes a look at it :)

    Sometimes, for a specific question you have to wait until somebody with knowledge/experience in that area comes around. Nobody has answers for everything.

    unanswered just like everything else I have asked here
    That's not entirely true: I've checked the threads started by you and most of them have been answered.

    I would disagree with that and say most have then have not been answered. If you are looking at replies you will find that what I say is correct. Most things I just give up on and find another solution.

    When you say 'what backup' I know there is none. However, the forums are the only backup. As I said I have replied to others but my track record for getting answers on this forum is not
    good.

    People answer when they know the answer. If you provide more details, the likelyhood someone will understand your question increases.

    Also, when you do find a solution, do you reply to your own thread and inform everyone as to the solution? It would be very helpful to other people in the same boat as you.

    and for all those clever nerds that choose to make stupid comments why don't you try and answer the 31 unanswered pleas for help on pages 3 to 6 instead.

    Bran - I assume you're at the point where you don't WANT help anymore?

    Well, HandySolo from the way you have inflamed, er, contributed to this thread I doubt that I would get any sensible answers from you. I manage quite well, and give help sometimes. The point is there are a lot of unanswered threads the deeper you go and it must be very, very frustrating for those newbies who cannot work it out for themselves. This is a serious point.

    Show me how I inflamed anything in this thread? Somebody wandered in, clearly confused and I helped them. Twice even!

    How did that hurt or inflame you? I really want to know.

    You understand that we're all volunteers here, right? All unpaid. All trying to help the best we can. You want to fix everything that's wrong here? Contribute. Help others. Bitching at me ain't gonna make things better.

    Oh my, and I thought you were all paid .... you cynically contributed to the rubbish replies .... oh forget it, you won't be able to understand. And read my last reply slowly, aloud if it helps, I said I DO help where I can.

    This whole thing is becoming totally unproductive, Bran. I'm going to close it.
