Question: It's Been Two Weeks Since A Post Was Answered Here

Is it typical to wait weeks for a reply here? I must have dreamed it, but I thought I read where one could expect a question to be addressed in 24 hours.

User avatar Hi skin,
My reply to a post such as this will be the same as I have responded to such posts in the past. There is not one post on this forum any more or less important than another. There are currently an overwhelming number of unanswered posts. These are answered by people who volunteer their time and do so to the best of their ability. It would be appreciated if this were kept in mind.
