Hi Martin,

It's probably a mix of both. I find that my days are pretty full, and so as much as I'd like to delve into the depths of Omnis to answer every question, I tend to only answer the ones I know 100% without looking because I don't have a lot of time to test a theory before posting a response.  The other thing is that Omnis can be used in a wide variety of ways, so sometimes the questions asked are outside our realm of experience.  

This is one of the reasons why I'm in awe of some of the prolific posters like Doug who has a vast knowledge of Omnis, and also for people like yourself and Das, who ask really good questions that are often common to most of us.

I would encourage everyone to be an active part of the Omnis Community through this list or the recently re-launched forums.  Without getting into an argument about how best to stay connected as a community, the point is that with the benefit of wisdom and experience we can help one another.  For upcoming developers - if you know the answer to a question asked, please post a response.  If you discover a new feature, technique, idea, please share - post examples on github.

Maybe we can reach the point where we can all work on a collaborative project as a community of Omnis developers, a place where we can define what "best practice" looks like for Omnis devs.  If we pooled together our resources I think we would be truly surprised at what Omnis can do!

Someone stole my mood ring. I don't know how I feel about that.
