    I have found this site so valuable.
    Did all of the research before purhase here.
    I am a real novic.
    everything i know about computers is self taught.
    No formal training.
    The on flaw I see with these forums is so many questions go unansered.
    I notice if no one answers, the moderator does answer.
    But do not see enough of people helping people.

    Not sure why,
    I know I almost never find myself with info to answer, being a novic.
    BUT
    I am guessing, many people just do not take the time to answer.
    Give a little.
    just answer one question you have expertise on.

    Well, we try, but then again a lot of the people who come here just ask the one question and then leave again. A simple thing like saying thanks and telling people what you actually bought and how you like it is all I'm asking for and would make the whole thing a lot nicer and seem more worthwhile.

    Topic moved to 'Off Topic' section.

    As to the question itself...
    I as a Moderator (or Super Moderator) I reply to posts not because others do not but simply because part of being here is to extend what knowledge or wisdom is passed to others less fortunate or in need of assistance.

    Regarding your query directly; you have to understand that not everyone will
    a). Be in a position to answer a request.
    b). Not everyone within the membership puts time aside to help others in need.
    Although this may look or appear annoying, not everyone is happy in making posts with offers of help.
    They either do not have the knowledge/experience or lack the confidence to sometimes stand on a soapbox and pass on any info they have.

    This doesn't make them inconsiderate, simply lacking in judgement.
    However, I fully understand what you say and I for one appreciate any member offering any amount of expertise they feel they can share with other members. :)

    Pam,

    We keep watch on the forums and make efforts to answer questions as they come along. What can we help you with? Please fire away.

    As just one I'd like to say thank you Pam.
    Each try to maintain an interesting, boyantly active but controlled forum.
    Most of the work though is done by the posters who keep things running.
    All we do as staff is wind up the clocks each day and keep things ticking over [​IMG]

    I am back on board. I have been spending more time on the Notebookreview forums (the sister site) than I have here.

    There is an unanswered threads link in the forums toolbar, you won't find many with 0 replies from the last few days.
