How to get the correct answer on forum sites

Most people dont know why they dont usually get the correct answers for their questions on forums like fixya. This is because they don't usually specify exactly what they want. For example to drivers for a computer, you have to specify the model of the motherboard, the device whose drivers you need, the operating system on which you want to use the the drivers, and whetehr it is a laptop or a desktop. If you specify accurately the details your question, you may not need to ask a question more than once. You may get your answer on the first question attempt. This would save you a lot of time.

Why is Fixya no bloody good at answering questions when you advertise you can answer questions


Sorry. I\'m from Europe, know things about electronics and computers but I don\'t drive a Kawasaki GTR 1000. Lots of questions about electronics, camera\'s, computers phones and operating systems I try to answer. For the more than 2000 answers I gave I got lots and lots of thanks, but I never got one penny. All the people who try to answer questions, do this for free. They at least have the standard they don\'t try to sell crap or don\'t answer things they don\'t have any idea from.

If none of all the volunteers has (or has had) a Kawasaki GTR 1000 it is not likely anyone can answer this question. I do have some manuals, yes even service manuals of motor bikes, but not one from Kawasaki, so I even can\'t look up what I could answer to your question.

I think one call to a place where they sell Kawasaki cam tell you what oil you need. They perhaps even have it in stock. But not knowing any motor home close to me, I do not make such a call.



I hope you understand all the volunteers here do their best, but can\'t answer all questions. I do have to admit your questions are very clear and better to understand than lots of other questions, but we (till now) don\'t have an answer.

Again Sorry.

I don't want any advertisement on my way2sms account.is it possible ? If yes,how?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

You have posted to the washing machine forum which I don't think you wanted to do ;-0(

I suugest that you need to contact your 'way2sms' account supplier direct rather than a FixYa forum. Your supplier is really the only source for answers to your questions.

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Thanks for your question!
I'm sorry that you haven't received an answer yet.
The response rate on FixYa FREE questions is usually over 80%, but sometimes questions go un-answered when:
1. the question is unclear, incomplete, or poorly worded...
2. the question is mis-categorized - so the correct experts aren't viewing it...
3. the question requires an answer for something that cannot be explained online adequately...
4. specific training, tools, or equipment are required to avoid injury or death...
5. the Experts that are online simply don't have the resources to answer your question fully...
Please feel free to re-work your question if you feel one of these may be the reason.
Of course you are not required - but converting your question to a PAID one usually increases the reply rate as well.
Normal rates for FixYa are...
$ 9.99 answer for one question.
$12.99 Live Real-Time online chat or premium e-mail support.
$29.99 Live Real Time phone support
Sometimes FixYa will run specials for unlimited questions via monthly subscription or reduced rates for limited periods.


Consider the savings that can be had when an informed Expert can save you a $100 service call, or a $350 trip to the car dealership.
Your problem solved - guaranteed! Or your money back!!

If you don't want to pay - feel free to re-submit your question so it returns back to the top of the work queue if you still need help.
