There is this thing which is bothering me. There are abt 500 unanswered questions on this forum. Okay many of them don't deserve to be answered but hey many of them do. I tried answerimg many of them, but some of them need a much smarter guy than me, please try answering them, lots of guys are facing problems.
No violence intended.
I try to answer all the topic I can; if I can help I will. But that doesn't mean I can go answering questions on stuff I dont know about.
And on the very rare occasions I ask for help, I seem to ask quesitons so difficult nobody else can answer them either
Out of the 500 or so unanswered questions, many were posted by folks who did one post and never came back. What possible benefit could anyone get from that, particularly if we need more information to properly answer the question?
There are a lot of very old threads that may have one or two posts on them but remain unresolved. If it's more than a year old, I consider it dead, and therefore not worth my time to answer. The original post had the right to bump the thread if they still needed help. I assume if they didn't they've moved on.Registered Linux user #270181
I respond to problems I can supply advice for - but thats not saying much. There are many users though - ozar and dapper dan come to mind first - who have helped me with countless issues. I hope 'someday' when I'm a little more knowledgeable I'll be able to help more and make this forum as vital to others then as it is to me now.10" Sony Vaio SRX99P 850MHz P3-M 256MB RAM 20GB HD : ArchLinux

Out of 62,319 threads, there are 500 that are unanswered, that's quite something, don't you think?
I will agree with Moe and all of u on this point. There are lot of guys who just make a one time appereance and then never turn up even to look what they have posted. I should have thought this before. Anyways this is a yet another thing I have learned.

Personally I don't think we should take this too seriously. We all know that a lot of people get their questions answered, but on the other hand ... maybe even more people could get that if we attracted more long-standing members.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
