Is one suppose to respond to the people whom answer their questions?

    Having seen that some questions can take months to be answered, I wouldn't have thought that a response would be needed.......unless there's something in particular that needs commenting.

    I have never expected anyone to, but one I just answered and advised started following me, became a fan and that felt really nice, but I don't think it is really necessary. We get credit for answering, that should be enough and up to the one asking, I would not expect it or feel anything about it and after all most answers are our opinions or own experience and may not work for them.

    I don't think you can anyway. You only have one shot in this section and that's it - it isn't like the forums or comments.

    So what could you do? Wait until there are no more answers and then respond? How would you know when?

    At any rate, we expect no responses.

    It wouldn't be possible to answer because, as Pcunix says, you only get one chance; however, it takes nothing to respond, every person who answers a question should see an upwards or downwards movement of at least 1 because of a +/- vote by the questioner.

    As has already been said, you can only participate once within a question. What I do, however, is when I see a really good response to one of my questions, I will go look at their profile and read some of their articles. If I like what I see and learn from it, then I will follow them to see what else I can learn from them.

    I think that's optional. Probably good manners in a way. But totally up to you. That's my opinion.
