The thing is not to worry. <3 I realized that the people in this forum and the Muslims in my community aren't out to get me, standing with a red ink correction pen or record of my mistakes. These people are here only to support and benefit you. You got to humble yourself to realize that I can make mistakes and my Muslim brothers and sisters aren't to simply make me feel bad and correct me with contempt, looking down on me -They are here to help spread knowledge and help you too become a better Muslim ^_^. It is a quality of a Muslim to want for others what they want for themselves.
I had something deleted. I felt bad for making the mistake, but I was glad because I knew it was deleted only to benefit/protect me and others. : ).
People not responding to your post is a part of forum life. Some threads fail and others are successes. They are not ignored because they are "bad." but mainly because people don't always remember to say something or have to say something.
Haven't you ever been to a beautiful thread, but simply got distracted by another great thread where you could to discussion more, so went there? Happens all the time, there are so many threads and people sometimes don't have the physical time to post in every thread and it doesn't mean they are just ignoring your threads/posts.
Benefit from the knowledge of others. It is usually a sense of pride that makes reluctant from gaining knowledge and the blessing from people who are more knowledgeable. So beware, that you want people to love you, rather you want Allah (swt) Love you for humbling yourself and coming out as who you are, only to become a better person
