Hi,

I posted a question the other day. How will I know when it has been answered? Will I be notified or is there a place on the site that will tell me?

Thank you,
Randi

This site is actually a Web interface to a mailing list. When you post a question, a new page (a thread, to use the local parlance) will be created on this site, and quite a lot of people will receive an e-mail message with the content of that question. If they reply to that message, your question page will gain another block of text, and anyone who is subscribed by mail will receive a reply to the original message.

If you are only interacting with the Web forum interface, you will know that your question has been answered in one of many ways:

  1. You might keep a tab open to that thread page, and refresh it from time to time.
  2. Your home page when you log into the site will contain the last 5 messages posted in each of the lists, and you might recognize your subject line there and realize you had a reply.
  3. If you checked the little “ping me” control when you either created the message or replied to it, you would get an e-mail with a link to the latest message in the thread.
  4. If you subscribed to the list by mail, you would get the reply directly, as if it had been e-mailed only to you.

Find the thread you posted[1], and look at its page. If there have been any replies, they will be there, listed chronologically. If not, and you want to “bump it”, reply to your own question, maybe adding more detail to the original question.

  1. All of your messages can be found in one place by finding your account on the People page, clicking on your “handle” in that list, and then looking at your memberships listing. There is a link labeled ‘View’ next to the name of each of the lists you belong to, and that will present a list of all of your posts to that list. In your case, there’s only this one, so I’m guessing your original post was lost in the ether somehow. Try posting again.
