I think I'm gonna go 0-fer with this AskMe question. Has that ever happened?

I mean, has anyone asked a question and have the hive mind come up totally blank?

Most aren't zero, but the 'stumped' tag might be worth looking at...

Yeah, just do a Find for " 0 comments" (with the space in front of the 0) on any monthly archive page. It happens regularly.

I think any post with 0 comments after 2 weeks or a month should automatically get the "stumped" tag.

I was so hoping there'd be 0 comments in this thread, too, just to freak frogan out. Ah well.

Sometimes for questions like yours, the only real answer would be this:
Your prayers have been answered. The answer is "no".
But the mods would delete such a response in an instant, so there's no point in making it.

I was gutted when this got no answer.

This has happened to me Twice.

I've had a couple, usually when asking really narrowly focused questions. It happens.

The only comment on my latest question was that I should add a "stumped" tag. Bah.

How do you add tags after you've posted?
posted by IndigoRain at 10:56 PM on October 17, 2006

Go into one of the threads you've posted. Look at the top right. You can add and remove tags in the box called, appropriately, 'Tags'.
