Make sure to add a title that both interests readers and clearly defines your question, then check your spelling and grammar for any errors.
Make sure to assign at least one topic to your question. Adding topics will connect you with the right members who are interested in that topic.
Do NOT type your question in all CAPS and do NOT capitalize every word of your posts.
Be specific about the question you are asking or advice you are seeking and give clear details about your situation so members can better help you but try to avoid making it so long it'll turn them off.
Also, add details to your profile so that members can know a bit about you to advise you better.
Share your opinions on other users' questions to increase the visibility of your profile. Having a unique profile picture to draw attention to your post never hurts.
If you're going to include spoilers, please let the users know BEFORE you reveal the spoiler. We don't want anything ruined for anyone.
You can also "feature" your question. Featured Questions are kept at the top of recent questions and in the Featured Question box on the homepage for 24 hours.
The questions that get the most answers are: - the ones that are featured - the ones that are controversial - the ones that are easy to answer (for example, "what did you have for lunch today" lol) and - trolling questions (people get riled up pretty easily on here)
I'll answer for myself: *-A question when I feel I can help with. *-Or when I see an obvious error or a fallacy to correct. *-Or when the subject seems interesting (geopolitics and history of civilization are my field. That can include religion thus) *-Others are routine: "Am I pregnant", Best penis size?", "My first time?" *-There are many I don't even try, like this one: "Who will be in control of the US Congress after the November elections?" "Where is LeBron James going to play next season?" "Who has to text first?" and all those American school etiquette questions.
