[SOLVED] Wondering why a certain type of question doesn't get replies

Hi - firstly, MHB is extremely valuable for my situation where I am distance learning, with no significant support or additional study material from my online university. I get the text books and am expected to be self-sufficient; fine, I can do that. But without MHB I am not sure I could do that, especially 'cos it's been 20 years since I last studied :)

Some fields are largely, even completely new to me. I browse the web extensively to supplement the text and often end up being uncertain I have the complete and correct picture, so I put a summary of what I think is right on MHB and ask for anyone to confirm/clarify or supplement as appropriate...I try to make it clear and concise.

But I notice this type of post often doesn't get replies, so my question here is what am I doing wrong OR how can I do this better to achieve the feedback I need? Examples are (recently, so might still get a reply) - http://mathhelpboards.com/linear-abstract-algebra-14/terminology-hermitian-adjoint-16338.html and earlier http://mathhelpboards.com/analysis-50/use-laurent-series-15978.html ,

I appreciate your attempt to make your posts better and this is a good thing that will benefit you in the future. I notice in both posts that you are asking many questions in the same thread. It is preferable that you have at most two questions per thread. There is no harm of separating a question into threads as long as they can be stand alone threads.
