Every once in a while it becomes apparent that one individual is monopolizing the question forum at WA.

We have a limit on how many training tutorials can be published each day and another limit on how many times we can post each day.

Should there also be a limit on how many questions are asked?

What do you think?

I understand what motivated this post because there have been a lot of questions lately that have been driving me nuts.... The "people" are asking the question even though their responses indicate they knew the answer. They just wanted to ask the question.

There should not be a limit to true questions for people that have problems.

I have decided to started ignoring the serial questions and the posts that are asked by people seem to ask questions that they already know the answer to. If we ignore those questions, maybe they decide it is not worth their time if they don't get the "reward" they are seeking.

I started in Wealthy Affiliate at the end of february.

Until three months ago:

I had no PC
I had just one email account for urgent communications
I never took part to the social media
I was recovering from a general break-down
My main purpose was to use the pc as a tool:

Learning the basics
Learn how to install usefull applications
Learn how to promote products
Learn how to do a focussed research on the net
During my investigations learning how to separate the good from the bad. I alredy know that there was a lot of scam !

I was very lucky to hit the site of JohnMiguel. I tought myself after a few days of reflexion and comparing other offers let's give it a try !

I was so proud when I published my first profile on the Wealthy Affiliate platform !
It took me three hours to make my profile ! Yes, 3 hours !

So I accepted the free membership and I started to learn day after day, night after night, lesson after lesson....

I recieved my first two messages from Kyle and Carson I don't even reply them but after I while I did.

Slowly the followers started to drop-inn.....

One of the great things about WA is that we're encouraged to ask questions. It's part of the education. We all come from different backgrounds & experiences.

So no, I don't think there should be a limit. It might deter members from asking & progressing. They might feel uncomfortable in asking.

In the main most members only ask when they're really stuck, unclear or short of time.

lol Once in a while there is a very curious member!

Hey Attila

I totally understand, this online thing is a whole new experience for you and we all have our own way of learning.

I know what you mean about it taking you 3 hours to write your profile, it happened to me too. I'm not a natural writer, it takes me a long time to compose what I want to say, even in comments. So well done!

I visited your profile a few days ago when I kept seeing questions from you and understood that you were trying to make sense for yourself what you were learning by hearing what other members had to say. Whilst we can ask questions in Live Chat it isn't for all of us, I ignore it as I can't keep up with it.

So if you need to ask a question (as you have done) - Ask It!
Other members who feel they can help will help.

I've just revisited your profile & noticed that all your questions are no longer there. Did you delete them? I hope you didn't feel you had to.

Best wishes
Brigitte :)

Good morning Marion,

Please allow me to tell my story/experience.
I joined WA half way Jan. 2017.
In the first months I did not ask questions and neither did I post.
By now I have a network of some 227 people and spend reading all the incoming messages for some 2 hours a day. I try to put a like where I really like and understand and quite often leave a message myself. What I do not understand I leave unanswered but I do read it.
I am disappointed having noticed the following:
On my first question, 3 people answered and the issue was solved.
On the second question, 10 people answered and it was also solved.
On my first post = happy Easter wishes I got 13 messages and 16
likes.
On my second post where I thought I was bringing in some valuable information to the community I only got 6 comments, very nice ones I must say and 8 likes.
With all the people I have been in contact with I must say the overall score I find poor, to say the least, and I wonder if everybody is always notified. I know I am as per day I get some 80 or more messages and I can hardly cope with it all.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske

I get where you are coming from Marion and you are right. There are people misusing it. Trying to make a rule to prevent these situations is difficult. Just putting two or three questions a day over a period would get a person to Top 50 or Ambassador (with a little other interaction too). Better perhaps a gentle private nudge from Kyle or Carson.

Cheers, William.

That's a good idea, Marion. I appreciate some members use WA as a chat space, but for many of us it's a serious tool. And by popping the same old questions every minute...you're practically saying you're not capable to search, i.e. most fundamental! And you're never gonna learn anything that way!

Absolutely! Being able to research is fundamental to online success.
