What can I do if I do not receive a solution or a response to a problem I have posted on one of the forums?

you google it, try to figure it out, keep searching forums as I dont your the only one with the problem, and when you do find a solution you post it so someone else in your shoes has the solution without having to do the work.

If it has been more than 24 hours since the last post you may wish to bump the thread by posting:

I don't know if you are talking about a specific topic so...

Describe the problem better? and in the correct forum section?
And as said if it has pasted 24 hours with no reply, you could bump it to give it another chance.

And slightly off topic; I have myself posted (on linux forums) a question maybe 2 or 3 times in the 8 years I have used GNU/Linux. The rest of my problems have been found through search on forums and google.
Especially here on ubuntuforums most problems have been asked and fixed many times. It's so convenient, that search button :D

You don't have to stick with the forums when seeking an answer to a question, unless your question is about an Ubuntu specific application, what works for most other distributions will work for an Ubuntu/Debian based distribution. You could also check out Ask Ubuntu (http://askubuntu.com/).

I only saw two requests for help from you.

1) The problem with "yelp". Someone entered the the same command; however, yelp worked. You never followed up with any additional information regarding the problem, other than referring back to your original post.


Edit: I also entered the yelp command and got the same error messages you did; however, yelp worked. I couldn't reproduce your problem; therefore, I couldn't help you.

2) The other problem regarding Ubuntu 10.10, Firefox 3.6.13, and NoScript 2.0.9.8. You never responded to the suggested solution provided. Did it work or not?

If you do not respond to replies; then, we will assume your problem is solved.

The smiley is not from smileycentral. :)

I know, but due to them being similar in looks, it probably was stolen from a malware inducing smiley site. (They don't allow you to view the source of the smilies, as they require you to install the software. I should know, I've spoken with support from them.)

It is a link to a smiley. I didn't install any software. :confused:

Edit: I can download the gif and edit it with GIMP if I choose. Oh, @Lucradia, I just read your signature, and I understand your paranoia now. If just viewing a smiley on a website can infect your computer with mallware, then you have serious security issues with your computer.

Thank you all for your replies. The reason for the question was to make sure I didn't unknowingly violate the Forums' Code of Conduct by being over persistent in the search for an answer.
A few respondents referenced "bump the thread". Could someone explain that?

post in the thread again, and it will jump to the top of the list of threads within that forum thus increasing the chances of a passerbye seeing your thread and helping.

don't just say 'bump', though -- check to see if there are any additional details you can provide or questions from others that you can answer about the problem.
