Ignored.

I feel like I've been placed on some kind of ignore list by everybody or something. I've asked many honest questions. Each one had a nice explanation and full details. The only time I ever post is when I can't find anything through search, but it doesn't help at all when I never get any replies.

I don't want to sound like I'm crying for attention, but I can't remember the last time I had a real reply from a question.
The earliest I remember is when I asked for a review of my site and I still had to bump it just to get someone to say something, and that was it.

Am I on a mass ignore list and didn't hear anything about it or something? There used to be a time when I would ask a question and it'd be answered in the next 5 minutes of posting. Now I have to beg to get something answered, and most of the time that still doesn't work.

Speaking only for myself, I don't answer questions for a few reasons.
  • I may not notice it
  • I may feel the author should RTFM, but I'm too nice to say that
  • I don't know anything about the subject

I've never seen a post by you until now so I imagine some others have ever even seen them perhaps try PM'ing some people you have seen that might be able to help .

Same here and on the last one sometimes I just don't have time to do research for others... if I did I gladly would but it's pay the bills or be on the streets and 3 kids make that not an option.

No one is on an ignore list.

People will answer questions if and when they can.

How can you be sure? I put people on my ignore list if they keep on breaking rules.

I've just gone through your posts and see nothing unanswered. Perhaps you can point out what you need to know instead of just saying you're being ignored? There are people still trying to figure vb4 out, including IB itself.

I think why some of the questions on the forums go unanswered is that they have been answered several times in the past. In most of the cases if you search search properly then you will find that your questions have already been answered somewhere on the web.


Also people should do some homework before asking questions. I have seen a lot of people asking basic questions which could have easily been cleared by reading the standard vBulletin manual.
