What should I do if my forum question remains unanswered?
On occasion, a question in the forum may go unanswered. There are many reasons for this, including:
- the poster has withdrawn the question because she or he figured it out
- the question has been moved offline for specific help. It may or may not remain open
- the question was answered elsewhere, but the post remains
- the question was posted to an incorrect category and has therefore gone unnoticed
