When to post the answer?

Hi All,

Can we answer for old topics? So that any unasnwered topics is anasered. Or we should only answer to new topics?

This is a judgment call. For most posts, putting in an answer more than a few weeks after the original post means there's a good chance the person posting the issue may not see it. If you have something unusual to post, a few months would probably be okay -- but it would need to be a really unusual answer. If the post is more than a year old, I don't know that adding anything will benefit anyone.

Could not agree more!

It's usually good to stick to the current discussions. But there are no rules around it, in this forum, as of now. We talked about it some time back to decide upon but, as far I can recall, we've not figured it out what can be the good course of action.


Thanks,
Anuj
