I completely agree to what you said about fxm, he's really doing a great job, is very active, knows a lot and provides polite, helpful answers.
Personally there are basically three reasons why I don't contribute more to the forums:
1. time constraints. I simply do not have enough free time to read every post in every topic and additionally give helpful answers. So I just skim the list of new posts once a while and read the ones that sound most interesting to me or where I think I could help/contribute.
2. other contributions in a thread: often there are already some answers when I read a thread the first time. When there's e.g. an answer by fxm or dkl there's usually nothing more to add as the answer's already excellent. However, unfortunately there are a few users on this forums whose answers are often not as good and e.g. are not very polite or have poor content. Usually I refrain from contributing to such a thread as it often just leads to useless discussions. Examples for such answers are e.g. answers trying to enforce its author's opinion; answers where the author obviously doesn't know what he's writing about; answers that use offensive language; ...
3. contribution of the OP: I usually also skip threads where the OP obviously doesn't read the answers, doesn't react on them or doesn't show any intentions to do something on his own.
For other topics related to the FreeBASIC project or its community.
Speaking about politeness,before leaving my own thread,sometimes i type 'thanks all' or just 'thanks'
