What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I have posted three questions within a week, but I still have not received any response for those questions. Why?

Even silly questions like How to extract Uranium from the sun using C++? usually get answered by people.

Probably the questions were poorly phrased or maybe you have not put enough and proper tags. –  Petar Minchev May 20 '11 at 11:35
    
Have you read this: tinyurl.com/so-hints –  forsvarir May 20 '11 at 11:36

If your questions aren't getting answered, perhaps you need to be clearer/more specific in what you are asking, or provide more detail and code examples to help people understand your problem. –  Chris Francis May 20 '11 at 11:36
    
Everything is well written and clear! –  DingDongDev May 20 '11 at 11:37
    
Flagged as not a real question. If nobody answers your questions it is because you are either not giving good information, or running into unusual or rare problems. Try contributing to the site to earn some points and you can post a bounty on your questions. Bounties will help motivate people to answer. –  maple_shaft May 20 '11 at 11:37

@DingDongDev - You haven't put PHP tag for example. If you put it more people will see it. You have put only soap tag which only a few people are watching. –  Petar Minchev May 20 '11 at 11:40

Always remember that the quality of your questions is directly proportional to the quality of the answers you can expect to receive. The more time you spend writing questions, the more time people are willing to spend writing answers. And thus, the more helpful those answers will be. –  Cody Gray May 20 '11 at 11:56

@AlEvertt, ummm why? –  JohnP May 20 '11 at 13:07

@Al Everett: In my defense, I posted it on the main SO site, not on this site. On SO, the link is used fairly commonly. Is there a rule saying we're not allowed to use them that I am not aware of? –  forsvarir May 20 '11 at 13:27
    
Yeah, I'm about the most vocal opponent of obfuscated URLs that's out there. But the one @forsvarir posted is extremely common on Stack Overflow, and I think is acceptable because it's immediately recognizable. –  Cody Gray May 20 '11 at 13:39
    
@AlEverett: that's a common one @JohnP that is automatically blocked by Forefront. –  Won't May 20 '11 at 14:42
    
@will apologies if this is obvious, but what's Forefront? –  JohnP May 20 '11 at 16:03

I had a look at your questions

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6070198/

How I pass multiple parameters to a soap method using nusoap?

SOAP returning "Internal Server Error"

You haven't added the all important PHP tag. This means it won't show up for people who are following the PHP tag and you're going to get less eyes on it.

One of your questions don't give enough detail. People here will help if they can, nobody is going to ignore your question just to spite you. But how can we help you if you don't give us enough details. Having a good problem definition helps a lot.

You should also read this FAQ entry on steps you can take (although I hardly think 'yesterday' is old)

How do I get attention for old, unanswered questions?

Also all three questions are hard on the edge of being closed as not a real question, in my opinion, especially "multiple parameters" one. –  Time Traveling Bobby May 20 '11 at 11:52

You need to be patient. Answering questions accurately requires some level of expertise at least, so you need to wait till questions grab the attentions of the experts. Also perhaps make sure that the questions you ask are clearly worded, and are not ambiguous (vague). Use the right tags. All this will improve chances of getting answered faster.
