You came along to have a look at my profile, even at my thoughts? Here they come.
EE is huge, but that does not evidently imply great, at least not in any respect.
Participants offering help are working for free and you cannot expect all of them to be real experts.
As asker, please put enough effort into a proper problem description - it is half the solution!
In general: no matter what you ask, no matter who answers, most of the work will have to be done by you. That means once more you need to understand what you are doing and why. And what you should better not.
If you find yourself being the one contributing less than half of your own thread's postings, then you have to give more feedback
Do you find yourself clashing with experts sometime and getting into little fights? Did you ever make up your mind about the problems of written communication in forums? It needs to be understood that written communication needs to be used carefully and it does not hurt to indicate some things you write are "only meant to help" :-)
Do you find you are giving a lot and getting only little back? Hm, did you ever come across the term "helper syndrome"? You should look at questions carefully and don't feel obliged to help anyone "just because they ask". See if the asker gives something back and kindly remind him that you invested time for him, if he abandons the question. In my eyes, abandoning starts by not responding for one or two days without indicating absence.
Finally: are you a victim of the gamification here? Do you find you would act differently if it wasn't for the points? What do you consider to be better, experts competing or experts working as a team? One should give that a thought or two.
