I agree with the statement saying to fill out your profile. You have a bio for a reason, be sure to use it! It's often the first impression other users will see. Keep in mind, this is a language EXCHANGE site, meaning there's a give and take involved. What do you have to offer those who you want help from? Are you just asking for help without offering any in return? Participating in the community shows that you're willing to help others and therefore they are more likely to help you. It also shows that you're serious about learning. There are plenty of users who get a lot of messages asking to help another person, take that into consideration.
