    Why are people able to(generally) answer questions rather than create questions to ask?

    I'm just not satisfied with the new format, I've asked them to recirculate the old questions, but they haven't responded yet. If a question get randomly recirculated it will get more exposure. That will give people who are new, or people that are online at a different time than you a chance to see what everyone was talking about a week ago.

    So many times you see the same question (worded a little differently), going around a minute, week, or month later than the same question another member has asked already.

    On the old format you could just edit your question and it would go back to the front page, now you have to answer the question for that to happen. I think for this reason it's less likely to see questions from some of the members here. The question winds up getting only a few answers, compared to becoming a discussion or getting many answers.

    Just my opinion though, maybe if more people requested admin. to recirculate questions or to allow edit to bring the question back to the front page, there would be more questions.?

    Your welcome!
    Ok many of the questions are only relivent to the person asking like a computer question or what type of cancer dose Michel Douglas have or how to fix or replace something or were can they perchase something and then there are the advice questions on reltionships and personal things . So not everyone has those type of questions but are happy to answer them if they can.

    Thumbs up, good insight.
    The submitting box says.....'' What would you like to ask ? "
    most of us already know everything!
    Because SOME of us are considered BOOKS of KNOWLEGE in the Q&A world.

    I turn down calls from Harvard professors if I consider the question they ask unworthy of my responce.

    Its a gift. :)

    however, i think this board is confusing. something about the confusion seems to keep me hanging on. i keep trying to figure it out.
