That’s very typical in a lot of forums. The OP tosses up a question and then pretty much vanishes.
My observation is that roughly 80% of the “I have a question” threads work that way.
I’ve never been able to figure out if it is an expectation that all answers will arrive in an hour or two
or if the OP is simply reading along and sees no reason to providing more information to the group.
Either way, I’m pretty sure that the focus of the answers is not all that great a week after the last input.
