What should we do ~ answer section These are the main things a regular italki user faces when asking a question in Answer section
1. getting two different answers to a question here, not knowing which one is correct
2. getting two perfect answers, not knowing which to mark as the best
3. I getting no answers
4. someone being annoyed when others ask "too many questions" (nobody forses you to answer, come on)

What do you do in these cases?
PLEASE no fighting! PLEASE!

Thanks a lot! :)

I'm pretty sure everything is clear but, please tell me what you don't understand.

I don't harm anyone's free time if I ask a question- public. It is their choice whether they will answer it or not. I am asking in ANSWER section, open to everybody. And it's my choice what I ask. I don't force anyone to answer me, but I won't tolerate people being rude to me, because I didn't open this account for fighting, but for learning.
If you are wondering what the question was, 
I asked for a list of all tenses that exist in a language I'm learning. Then a person started being rude. My aproach was OK. I am always polite with users here. Note that it only happened to me once and I get 100% of nice responses but I read other questions from other users, that's why I made this in the first place. I respect everybody. What's the point? Is asking questions about a language now bad on Italki?

Plus, this discussion is for every user facing these 4 situations, because we all do. I wanted this to be a friendly conversation, not another feud.

I find it difficult to understand your question.

too many not too much

please don't be afraid to ask too many questions

1. Ask for further clarification.

2. Whichever you think is best

3. Ask the question in a different way.

4. "Too many questions" maybe you should respect other people's free time more and don't expect them to "chill out"

4. If i had unintentionally annoyed someone id apologise and reconsider my approach for the future.

I think about what is being said and where they agree I agree, when only one makes a change I ask myself which makes more sense, and if I'm still not sure I ask them.

Best?? Well if in doubt choose one (toss a coin)

No answers, well ask the question again a different way.  Or edit the existing one.

Too many questions?  Well people like to be helpful but sometimes, too many questions look like a mountain to climb, no one forces us, but we like to do the work in little chunks, not great big mouthfuls in which we may make too many errors.
