I was wondering something. I posted yesterday a post and it got no answers yet. I know I have to be patient but it seems like I won't get an answer since all the other posts after mine has been answered and not mine. Why ?

I don't think this was a complicated post no one is able to answer. Plus, I made sure to search through the site for answers about it too. I got some infos about what I was looking for but I was still confused after that so that's why I decided to ask.(maybe you thought I didn't made enough of a search before about it)

I know I could make a search on the net about it but sometimes this is far more faster asking here and I'm sure I'll get an accurate answer to it too.

So I am just wondering I guess what happened ?
(I am really not mad or anything, just wondering)

We don't guarantee ANY specific time amount for anyone's posts to be answered within, cool. Generally, we try to triage with posts, and answer the most vital or time-sensitive posts first, and from there, volunteers simply answer the posts they feel most capable of answering individually. And sometimes, due to the sheer volume of posts on the boards, some posts get lost in the shuffle.

This isn't one set of standards applied to you and applied to no one else.

And I think we can agree that you have a history of asking a LOT of questions and getting a LOT of answers and attention here over the time you've been here, no?

So, like anyone else, sometimes you need to just be patient, and if you can't, then look elsewhere for answers for that given thing.

I'm really not mad about it Heather. Really.

I was just wondering. Just thought maybe you guys were tired of my posting. [Smile]

I know I ask a lot of questions. I am really not a shelfish person, far from that, so I really understand that it's more important to answer other people's posts that cover more important issues or post from users who don't ask as many questions as me or new user's posts. I totally understand. And I know most of my posts don't deal with urgent matters so.

And yeah, I get a lot of attention here, I realize that and I really appreciate it a lot. I already said it once but I'm gonna thank you all again : you and the other volunteers who helped me. I strongly appreciate it.

And thanks for your answer again. [Smile]
