As for , it was middle of the night UK
time, so I’ll give you that. The thing that irked me was
that conversation occurred around my question, and yet
there was no ACK that people didn’t know the answer. Is
that a trait of the channel? Here in .au, people tend to
give a NAKs as often as ACKs. Maybe I’ll come and lurk for
a while.

Unfortunatly I have to say it seems to be a trait for
the channel, at least sometimes. I think part of the
problem is that is to big so most people with the
know-how don’t really follow the discussion but only
responds when adressed directly.

There are some people responding though
Telsa being probably the best at it. And I
try to respond myself sometimes, but I too tend to focus on
other channels most of the time so when my name is not
being addresed I often miss questions being asked.

My suggestion is trying the smaller channels on GIMPNET
since there are a much better chance of getting a reponse
there. Another alternative is if you now the handle of the
maintainer of the module you wonder about so you can try to
address him/her directly.

Anyway if your questions don’t
get answered and I am in the channel, try typing in my
handle (Uraeus) and I will try to help. I seldom now the
answer, but I usually know who you should ask :)
