Aw! I am sorry you feel this way. I wish I had advice to offer. I’m not sure though, since I can’t really look at past posts of yours to see why people might not respond.

*hugs*

heh. you’re not the only one. I posted a thread about my wedding vows a couple of hours ago…something that means a lot to me. I didn’t get any response. but I guess that’s what you get for relying on a bunch of strangers for support! 

Why don’t you go back to your other account, bump up your threads, and I’ll see what I can do? 🙂

I feel the same.

I also feel somewhat like a post killer some times!

I understand completely.  I always write it off to it gets lost in the forums.

Usually the people that post quick to the point questions get the most responses.  I’m not good at readying 8 paragraphs to get the full question. 

Sorry you’re feeling this way!!

I also notice that where i live at night is when the most people are online and give the most responses.  Dunno if that helps.

I feel like that sometimes too. I try to give the post a specific title so people know what it is before they click it. Honestly, this post title doesn’t tell you what the post is about, which could dissuade people from clicking it.

I’m sorry that you feel left out.  It isn’t intentional, there are thousands of members hear who create hundreds of posts every day.  It is possible that your threads got buried under other threads.  Also, there is a pretty large US population so if you post on the weekend or late at night, you probably won’t get as much of a response as you would if you posted in the middle of a work day.

It also helps to bump your thread sometimes.

I don’t search out specific forums, I just hit the “Boards” thing at the top of the page so I can see the most recent posts. If a lot of threads get posted at once, yours may get dropped to the bottom quickly.

I think this happens to everyone, no matter who you are. I’ve even started threads that haven’t gone anywhere. But with so many thousands of posts every day, things are bound to get a little buried. Definitely not something to take personally! 🙂

Same thing happens to me so I try to look for threads that have few or no responses and add in a comment or two. I totally understand this feeling but it seems that the bigger threads usually have some sort of controversy or people are downing the OP and if few responses means I am not in that category, then I will take the few responses.

I get where you’re coming from, but without knowing what posts they are, people can’t go back and comment!  If you bump them, they’ll come back to the first page!  I find that posting things on the weekends or in the middle of the night is the worst time, because the boards are less active!

Sorry you feel that way. I have def hoped from more responses in posts before too but sometimes it depends on the time of day. If tons of people post at the same time yours might get skimmed over.  I usually try and post on thing that done have a bigillion responses because I feel like my advise never gets read. Try bumping!
