Really, no one helped you? Sometimes this community shocks me :O Also, I assume you don't need anymore help, right? lol

There can be many reasona why people don't reply.

Maybe he was already helped over private message and the others didnt want to post it twice. Maybe no one was around at the time and only noticed this message late. Or maybe the people who read it simply couldnt figure out a good answer.

I have been away for a while too now, missed many messages. A lot I could have maybe responded on, but I may never get to read them as my time on a day is limited too.

This community shocks you? I think this is one of the most helpful communities I ever saw.

I personally have helped a lot of people with homework assignments, upcomming exams, etc.
Some questions I stopped reponding to.

Things like:
'I have an upcomming exam in 2 days and I need to learn this 400 page book verbatim.'
Answer: you should have started a lot earlier.

This could be one of them. All techniques for memorizing are explained in the beginners section. Specialized techniques for memorizing numbers are explained too.

I rather see posts like 'I studied the beginners guide and have a question about the Major system' or 'I have trained myself the basics and now I get stuck on this specific item' or 'I have searched the forum for an answer to this secific question, but seem to be unable to find an answer'.

A question like 'I have these 1000 items I need to know for my exam in a couple of days' will probably get no response from me.
Reason; there is no room for errors anymore. There is no time for first learning the basics, getting proficient with them and then do the work for the exam.

Sorry that no one got to that post. I will try to figure out how to improve that.

Maybe I will add a note to let people know that it would help if they write out what exactly what they've already tried, and what didn't work, so that we know that they already read the information we have for beginners (like Kinma mentioned).

You said "sometimes" -- are there other areas of the site that you think need improvement? I'm always interested in constructive feedback. You can send me a private message through my user profile any time. :)

I think Josh is right: People should include a description of their attempts thus far. If a Memory Palace is involved, post a drawing of it so the people interacting with you have a sense of what you're working with on a visual level.

Just to point out one thing; I said "sometimes". :) I love this community most of the time but I do see a he'll of a lot of posts that aren't even looked at.

The only flaw with this site is that some people don't even click on certain posts that are looking for help. I think we should all try our best to answer other people's questions and worries!:D

Not sure about others, but I tend not to read everything for a simple reason. I don't have the time to.

I have a job, a daughter, a new-born son, friends, sports, you name it. I don't have time to read it all, so I read the things I think I can help with. Economy is a subject I have not tried yet with mnemonics, so it would automatically go down on my priority list. Also, I read a lot of things while not logged in and I do not know if the forum records all those views as well.

I also can tell you without a doubt that we all try our best to answer and help people :) the thing is, we are not always able to. Mnemonics is young and many things are still being thought of as we speak, there isca lot no one knows yet, we also don't have unlimited spare time (unfortunately).

I read almost everything, but the volume of posts is so high that I can't always reply. (There are over 30,000 posts now.) I will keep thinking of ways to improve the situation though. :)
