    Best way is to post some of your own questions as well! That will enable others also to answer your questions and to post more questions! What it needs is people who ask questions as currently it is only limited to a handful few who post questions but the ones who post answers are many!

    Yes, that's one good idea to have our own questions as well. And this tendency also needs to be changed. Everyone should participate equally. I have seen that some few members are only asking questions.


    That's true! The participation needs to be healthy and interactive. Also many people actually do not understand the real purpose of the Q&A section judging on the kind of questions being asked. Only those questions should be asked the answers to which cannot be easily found on the google. But here people are asking only such type of questions and also some type that are more of a discussion or an opinion rather than a proper question!

    That would be really difficult, Kalyani. Google, or no Google, internet has got answers to everything. If you say people should questions for which the answers cannot be easily found on Google, then its difficult. People may only refer to Google or internet to search answers. If there's on reference, then the question remains unanswered. So, then what's the point in asking such questions.

    Actually, no Abhijeet, that is a popular misconception. Think about it, if I can Google any topic and get an answer within seconds, why would I waste my time posting that question and waiting for days for it to be answered. But since the activity os only limited as a means to earn points, it has become a norm to ask questions with very easy answers. Also, when I ask a question, I expect it to be answered by someone who has either enough experience or has knowledge about it eg. I have asked a question long back in Home and Garden section related to a plant. I posted that question because I genuinely need an answer to it, and I could not find any answers to my query on google. so hoping that there would be someone here, I posted that query which is unanswered till date!

    My stand on the activity is that the kind of questions I would answer is that I could tax my brain cells to some extent, lean back on my own experience and knowledge to answer them, not google them and then paste the answers here!

    I don't think so. While I am doing coding stuff, I usually end up getting no answers for my queries and find it by my own. Just think out of the box, we are adding more and more categories to the section, in case you have any, please feel free to suggest.

    Actually I was thinking about it.

    We having Computer and Internet category.. But what if someone want to add question related to other technology like mobile or something. So please put Technology as parent category and put Computer and internet inside it if possible.

    There is no way. You can answer only the available questions. If there are no members to put questions, there will be no answers. If you have anything to ask, put your questions as well.

    So, it means, instead of asking something in the forum, I can ask it in the Answers section? I guess, the admin should encourage the members to post more questions.


    I agree. Q & A is for questions and not discussion. Forum is for discussion and not questions. We should use Q & A more for questions. We may ask questions in forum only when these are related to forum issues.

    What I think is, if some question have more chance for discussing then it can come on forum.. But if some question have certain answers, and no chance of discussing then of course it should only go on Q & A section.

    I respect your thoughts. But I just pointed out the other side of the coin. That's it.
    But I cannot help but say that, members are getting points here that are later translated into bonus points and then into some bucks. That is why people are active on such forums. One thing more. I don't think we should expect our doubts to be sorted out through such answers. It is more like a discussion in a Q&A format.
