I have noticed that ever since the separate Homework forum has been established, not many advanced homework problems are being answered. My latest question (which I would otherwise have posted in the Astronomy forum, if there was no Homework forum) is located https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=97424". As you can see, no one has replied to it. Another member and I have been continuously noticing this problem-- as no one is replying to our posts. Our questions are only from first year university courses, so I'm sure there are many people that visit this forum that know how to solve the problems. We are following all the guidelines for posting homework questions: writing the full question, writing our answer (or attempted answer), and including any diagrams that would be helpful. We are not just asking for answers, yet we barely ever recieve replies. Even the members designated "Homework Helpers" are not of any use. Shouldn't these people be attempting to answer questions which have not been answered by any general members, since they are the ones designated to be helping with homework? Also, as is the case with my latest question and with many others, the attachments are taking a long time to be approved. I've noticed that there are moderators online, but none of them attempt at approving the attachments. I have also noticed that the attachments do not require approval in the general forums-- only in the homework forums. If a diagram/picture is necessary for other members to understand my question, how can I expect to receive any form of reply when the moderators won't even approve my attachment? I am hoping that someone will respond with an answer to inform me, and many others, of what is going on. Thank you.
