I'll suggest you try something I found very helpful when I first started using this forum. I was new to Arduino, and so not ready to start providing assistance here. What I did was to play a game where I would read a forum thread and then make a private guess as to what the correct answer was, then subscribe to the thread and watch to see whether my guess was correct. In fact, I still play that game here with the threads I'm interested in, but not knowledgeable enough about to participate in.
Good! This happens with me a few times.
The posts I have posted a answer on, are marked with a symbol (specs)
So I sometimes become a kid and think that the posts are parts of land and the posts which have that symbol are my territories of the colonial empire XD
But, I don't open up every post, I see the title. If the title is one that can I answer, then I open it up and see the post and see if I can answer. I only answer if it is answerable by me. If not, then I don't try to post useless comments.
I try to notify the OP about all the things that can go wrong, should be warned, and can be the reason on the issue.
