I tend not to ask questions unless they are very hard. So I know it is a long shot that I might get a useful answer. I tend to get bad answers from people who didn't really understand the question. It still seems like a better idea to ask the hard questions than just to wonder.
I have also asked some stupider questions (meaning I should have figured it out myself before asking) and gotten helpful answers.
It has happened to me many times that I manage to solve the problem when I start to write the question and all the necessary information. In these cases I don't even have to press the "Submit" button. It seems the process of formulating the question helps you think and find a solution.
I haven't had to ask a question this year, and last year I answered myself a couple of times. There is one option left out: some kind soul has just tried to answer a question I asked 2 years ago! Mind you, I've done that myself once or twice.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy, Jessie, Sid/Experimental, playing with LFS.
In my time here I have started 10 threads that ask for help with particular technical matters. I've had 1 go unanswered, a few with a couple of responses, and some with ongoing assistance that was way beyond what I expected and which I am extremely greatful for. I can't actually put all my eggs in any one Poll choice so I wont try unless it is mutiple choice.
