How do I manage responding to forum responses better?
I have a dilemma, I always join forums like this and post questions on them and try to have a good time and be communicative -- but after a while, once I post a forum thread that gets a lot of responses, I can never manage responding to all the respondents.
It's overwhelming, each response leads to more responses, and I just can't talk to everyone all of the time or ever in response.
I'll private message a few people privately to thank them for their responses at times, or to talk to them more in detail -- but even then things can get confusing since I can get a lot of private and forum responses to manage.
I'll soon be unable to get back to everyone timely or ever, and feel as if I come off rude, distant, unresponsive, or selfish for getting my answers and not responding back -- or seeming like I got what I wanted and just disappeared.
