While there are some general rules to this forum, I assume the upvote system tends to be what drives the community in deciding which posts are good, which comments are good, and which are spam or don't belong. Most people are generally nice and kind to each other here. We all have at least one thing in common: we're all struggling to make our lives and the lives of others better.
But I do feel that this is a powerful enough community and could be even stronger in terms of our support system. I have noticed that there are times when people post things -- like asking for feedback on their products -- or just trying to get an idea about something, and those posts might go unanswered.
So I am proposing this:
As a supportive community, if you see absolutely no response to a post, that you drop the mentality, "someone else will answer it" and do your best to reply to that person, even if its the only response, it's better than leaving it empty. Also, if you happen to read a post and you generally like it, give it an upvote. Help a fellow Indie out.
So I ask two things of you right now for your commitment: 1) if you agree and acknowledge this, you upvote this post so that it makes people aware. 2) you start doing it immediately.
Update: Thank you for the incredible responses -- I have also made efforts to reply to 0 comment threads IF I understand what the person is asking and I can carry on a conversation about it. I have definitely seen some improvement in regards to not leaving people in the dark and treating Indie Hackers as a supportive community here to guide and give advice to others. Very much appreciated.
