Do questions only get answered straight after they are asked when they are at the top of the 'most recent' posts?
Most people only answer the top list of questions and don't go 'down the list' very far. There are too many questions to keep going down the list.
We call 'em as we see 'em.... and do our best doing so...
No. It does take time for some questions to get answered, but there position on the list usually doesn't matter. If you are having trouble getting answers, try rewording your question or adding detail. Remember to keep your question clear as well.
