Why Ask A Question Then Disappear?

Last Update: June 06, 2015

I’ve been missing for a year from WA, but one thing I’ve noticed since coming back is;

Why do people ask a question on chat then disappear?

Some people even ask for a review and you never hear from them again.

If someone replies to a question or a blog or anything then at least leave a reply. They’ve taken time out from a busy schedule to answer and maybe had to research that answer. Please have the decency to reply with at least ok or thanks. If you’re too busy to reply then you’re surely too busy to ask the question in the first place.

This community thrives on people helping each other out, please give back as well.

Ok rant over love you all!

That happens on blog posts too that are questions - I don't understand why people do this.
IMHO (in my humble opinion), someone who posts a question in any form, should always return with acknowledgment or follow-up or a thank-you.

Hi Bullet, I have been wondering this myself, we are willing to help people out, but its kind of hard when they disappear on us as we are trying to help them. I do see it a lot in chat, I just commented on it and called it the "black hole", but seriously if you are asking for help be courteous to those you are asking :-)

Yes I agree, we do need to take time to participate in the community.

We write in our WA reviews about how awesome the community is full of entry level and advanced online business owners.

We need to remember that WE are the WA community and we have to continue to make it awesome by participating and offering help and feedback when we can.

I know I'm trying to spend an hour today just on feedback, comments, and answering questions if I can, and just checking peoples websites out. It's been a week or so since I've done this as I've been focusing on onlineincome.tools and naturalhealthyrecipes.com a lot the past few days.

Training is important too though - the more we go through it the more we will learn to succeed.

Just had a quick look at your site, full of good info. One thing is the site is jumping about because of the slider at the top. The images are being squashed then expanded, unless it's a problem from my end.

Yeah the slider is a bit messed up right now. Amy needs to upload smaller images to use for it. Currently they are full 5megapixel. The slider will work better if you have the images formatted correctly in the Tempera theme.

So it's not on your side. That will be today, or tomorrows work : )


Thanks for checking into it : )
