I see new members almost daily. There are a few things that you can do to increase your chances of success.
1- Fill out your profile and goals. Answers to questions you ask depend on us having the information.
2- If you limit viewing of your profile to friends only as opposed to Freetrainers Members there are times when nobody can respond to your question due to this restriction.
3- Flogs are not the best place to ask questions. First, see number 2. Nobody can comment on your flog except your friends if you restrict your profiles to friends only.
4- Forums are the best place to ask questions. Your question may be the exact same question that another member may want to ask. I rarely go a day without looking at this forum. If I can't answer your question I can get you where you need to go to get an answer.
5- Participation in forums and then giving back what you learn is the most sure way to suceede at this endeavour.
6- I would look a lot smarter if management would fix the damn spell check.
