I joined SO about 4 months ago. Over the first couple months, I asked about 13 questions, all related to iPhone development. I was impressed with how quickly I received responses, and without fail all my questions were being answered.
However, out of the past 10 questions I have asked, I have received only 1 satisfactory/helpful answer. For most of them, after a couple days they had next-to-no views at all. I ended up offering bounties on several of them, just to get some notice... and even with the bounties, I received almost no replies; and none which actually answered my questions.
I can only think of 2 explanations.
- The type of traffic on the site has changed, so that fewer iPhone people are browsing/posting.
- My questions have become much more difficult over time.
To me, they seem like mostly the same type/complexity of questions that I used to ask, but perhaps as I have grown in my iPhone skills, the types of questions I now can't figure out on my own are more difficult than the ones I used to ask about.
Any ideas? Am I doing something wrong with how I'm asking my questions? Thanks.
