Don't forget to report back.

What is the deal with all these people that ask a question and never come back to report when their problem got solved?
I am browsing the forum and from what I see, there are at least a hundred threads that "random guy" asks something "ten or more users" try to help and "random guy" never comes back to thank or report.
I think there has to be a forum rule for this.
You ask, you report.

That's easy Jeff.
Ask the admins to remove posting privilege to all users with zero post count.
So first post has to be at welcome area.
Case closed.

won't work
updating and intro are really not rules but 'suggestion'
and forum makes money whether they post or not

Nothing unusual about that Charlie. I'm an avid smoker (as in smoked meats) and people regularly ask questions about this that and the other thing) on a BBQ site I frequent. If I can help, I do.

And quite often they either don't come back and offer their thanks/results or worse, post about some other topic in another thread and never come back to the thread you helped with.

Once I know they've been back to the boards (on some other topic or just visited), and did not acknowledge the help, I delete the post where I offered help. And to make sure I never make that mistake again (with that poster), I put them on my "ignore" list.

I'll be damned if I'm going to spend 15-20 minutes either typing a response or doing some research for some ungrateful so and so. Yeah, this is a sore point with me but that's how I feel.

Funny thing is no one has ever called me out on it (or maybe it's because my post is gone and they never knew I had posted in the first place).

The greatest thanks that you can give contributors to the diy threads is feedback.

Second is to rate the thread (red bar above first post). This helps others see the value of that thread when
researching the same topic.

And if you find it didn't work, or you found a way to improve the process this site values such info.

OPs are not arrogant, they are helpful and striving to help us all look after our cars.
