When I was a new user, I asked a question and got lots of answers. I just recently asked a question and got no answers -- only intelligent comments. Why am I not getting answers anymore now that I've got more reputation?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
There are several reasons for not getting answers. Possibilities include:
Of these options, I'd say that the last is by far the most common reason for a lack of answers. I have a guide to asking questions well - do your questions meet the suggestions in that guide?
587 reputation probably isn't enough to dissuade people from answering; maybe your question is just unclear. You've asked 8 questions in the last two days and 7 have gotten answers, so I assume you're talking about this one. Somebody asked for clarification and you left a sarcastic reply without answering -- maybe you should actually answer that comment and see if it helps? Or maybe it just happens that nobody knows the answer; 16 unanswered questions out of 158 asked isn't bad
