Why aren't my posts getting answered here?

Why are my posts hidden? I only post on here to get answers and I've noticed that you can't see the most recent questions posted on here.

    Some reasons questions don't get any/many answers are:

    *They are posted at low YA user times of day

    *They are posted in low activity categories

    *They are poorly worded or not understandable/gibberish

    *They are complex and not many would know the answer

    *They don't interest the people who saw them

    *They are trolling or aren't questions (but statements or requests)

    *They are posted in the wrong category or not the best category to get good answers

    *Some users refuse to reply to a question posted by a user using the Anonymous (blue face) feature

    *Your question is only visible to you due to it being hung in the spam filter (log out of your account OR try viewing your question in another browser in which you aren't logged in to your YA account. If you can see the question, then it's fine. If you can't, then go into it and move it to another category, then back where it belongs. Check it again with a non-logged in account. Once you can see it, you can feel sure others can see it too).

    There's many reasons:

    They may be too technical

    Dear Abby type


    Slow time of day

    Some people don't answer anonymous questions

    You could be asking chatty questions

    You could be disguising rants in your questions.

    Without seeing your questions we can't help you.
