Unfortunately, in between visits, its easy to miss a few hundred posts - because the forum software isn't able to tell a member which posts they haven't viewed yet.
Certainly with all the technical knowledge on this board, no question should go unanswered.
Can't somebody monitor these things.
If for some reason the question is unanswerable, or, more likely, nobody wants to, a monitor could just tell the questioner, "Sorry, we can't answer your question", or "Sorry nobody wants to answer your question."
For example, "SD/MMC from the ground up" received a flurry of interest at first
with many of the arduino 'gurus' (gurus in the midst)
I get the impression that the gurus have an inordinate control over this board.
Its almost as if everyone waits for one of them to answer first, and therefore give the nod that its alright to answer this question.
Often what happens is that some upstart newbie will give it a shot, and try to help.
I consider the refusal to answer a question asked, by someone seeking help, as bad manners.
But only if I click on each board, like "Development" for example. So, unless there's something else I'm missing. I'd click on each of the 14 boards to look for flags?
some of (very few) recent threads on mostly non-technical matters have concerned me in the way they seem to have descended into personal attacks. But in my view formulating a set of rules isn't going to change that.
What I meant was that readers of a question are awaiting a response to the question by someone more knowledgable to reply first, someone with lots of stars, before venturing an answer of their own. In other words, "if the people in the know ain't gonna answer this question, then I surely ain't, even though I might know a little something that I couuld add". Thus a question goes unanswered, leaving that big fat, embarrassing zero in the replies column
I wonder what would encourage people to step forward?
