# Why aren't people trying to answer my questions?

I mean for my past few questions, people have been correcting my mistakes but no one offers to help. I get it I made mistakes but people just criticise my questions rather help me solve a problem. I expect better from this forrum. My questions do get upvotes but remains unanswered.

• Of your most recent 8 questions, 5 have answers and 1 has a link in a comment to an answer. I'd think that's a pretty good ratio. You did ask someone for more details, but you addressed sir, not @<username>. sir is polite, but the @ reference will actually notify the person that you're talking to him. Make sure you type the @", then the first few characters of the user name, then click on the name link that pops up - I've seen many people type @sai teja or @sai which will NOT notify you. (You're receiving a notification because I'm commenting on your post.) – FreeMan May 6 '19 at 12:43
• Hi! Just to correct a common misconception; This is not a forum and that goes some way to answering why you're not getting "comments pointing you in the right direction". Comments will help you improve your question to the point you will (hopefully) get a really good answer. – Jamiec May 7 '19 at 7:34
• It helps if you accept answers that you are satisfied with, and/or upvote answers that you find useful. – Koyovis May 13 '19 at 0:54
