I received this msg today when I logged in at homebrew.
Hello fungusamungas it appears that you have not posted on our forums in several weeks, why not take a few moments to ask a question, help provide a solution or just engage in a conversation with another member in any one of our forums?

Well you know what, in my last post titled lager fermentation schedule, around the beginning of June ,I detailed my lagering brewing process and asked for some advise. I got 108 views and one, yes one reply that stated :

"This is a hell of a question and given that 36 hours have passed without a reply, a difficult one to answer. I suppose 90% of all the beers brewed by all the regular posters here are ales."

Yet I see many, threads about lagering questions on forums here and they all seem to be answered.

I would hope that if I am asked to be active in this forum, and participate in threads, others would participate in mine as well,
Just a thought
Sincerely
Fungasamungas

So 108 people didn't know the answer. 109 makes me.

FWIW: Your thread title could be read as providing an answer that 108 people wanted to know the answer to.

If it makes you feel any better no one ever responded to my introduction post.

BTW the record for a non-recipe /non-admin / non-sticky straight up post that went unanswered in the last year goes to:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=11738

460 views and no replies.

My personal best is 101

One of the most prolific posters, david_42, has a post out there with 384.

Also, if you post late at night like you did (late on the east coast US) you can always expect fewer responses. I would say the peek time of activity is in the mid to late afternoon (people getting board at work, etc.). I know I tend to read the newer posts more carefully than the ones from the night before.

If you post late at night, don't hesitate to go back and bump the thread the next day by responding to yourself or something...

Also, the questions that get the fastest and most response tend to be the one's that a lot of people know the answer to...you asked a tough question and tough questions take longer for an answer because you have to wait on the experts (not me btw).

I get the same message almost everytime I log on. (not the next time though)

My response to homebrewtalk.com is simple.....I search a lot, I read a lot, and I thank you....a lot.

Thanks again!

And why is this in the AG/Partial mash section?

I'd be happy to help, but, to be honest, I'm exclusively an ale brewer for the time being. I'm sure if I ever (not likely though) get into lagers, I'll be asking the same questions as you. Welcome aboard!

BTW, I love your handle. You get that from the musical Grease?

I think there's a delicate balance here. Sometimes the vets here are in the giving mood and are quick to help a noob out. Sometimes not. You have to hang in there. Add some discussion to existing threads. Do a lot of reading and post about things you've read. Hey, you should consider yourself lucky that some EAC didn't just tell you to F#ck off ;-) Now try figuring out what an EAC is.

Sorry I couldn't help. I can only read about lagering.

Look at the bright side...I'm more likely to get a pop-up message when I log in saying:

"BierMuncher, it appears you've been posting an unusually high number of worthless posts, asking dumb questions, giving bad advice and cluttering our forum with pictures of your ugly equipment. Why don't you take this opportunity to go ahead and find another forum.
Best of luck...the Management".
