What does it take to get people to respond to questions that actually help people out? I have posted a literal and personally useful question to get help with an assignment and no one has responded to it. Any suggestions?

Just being true and sincere. People still value this things and can feel if you are truthful enough in presenting discussion and responses here

I am truthful in all of my posts but I see people that are being outright silly with some of their posts and they are receiving numerous responses

I know I am sounding like a petulant child sorry about that.

Try posing the question as the discussion title. Most people look at the title to respond to discussions. Maybe that will help. Like, instead of posting this discussion as the title being mylot...maybe you could have posted it as "How do you get people to respond?" or "Any suggestions to get people to respond?" It seems as if you have to catch a person's attention with the title or they are not going to read any further. I think you have some great discussion questions too. So, maybe that will help. :)

I will try, but I always found that if a word intrigues the mond I will more often than not respond. It just seems a bit redundant that the title of a posting be the first line in the post itself. So I will try and get back to you
