    Ask it in a way that people understand. Don't ask a vague question, don't ask something and not give enough information, don't write a entire book either where you have to read and read before you know what you are talking about, ask questions people want to answer as well for instance don't post photos asking how you look and how other people look, don't troll, don't ask questions that are asked on this site at least once a day, don't be rude when asking and also try to ask it to where it sounds interesting

    Do you answer other people's Questions ? if not try Answering other people's Questions and see if that gets them to Answer yours

    Most questions only need 1 answer, as long as it's the correct one.

    .

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

    *The site has far fewer users than it did years ago

    *They are posted at low YA user times of day or days of week (esp holidays)

    *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, spamming, or aren't questions (but statements or requests)

    *They are posted by a user wanting someone else to do their homework

    *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 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).

    You CANNOT force people to answer your questions if they do not want to. You can Bait and fish and insult and harass and defame and try to psychologically manipulate them online as much as you want, but that is blatant cyber abuse and it does NOT work with people who partially understand how an abuser's mind works.
