Question Number: 28571

Other 7/1/2014

RE: Adult

Ken of Redding, CA USA asks...

This question is a follow up to question 28542

Maybe you ought to consider an option where impatient people can pay to get a quicker answer. But, of course, you should make it a hefty price to make it worth your time.

Honestly, you guys do a great job with the site and nobody has the right to complain when you are donating your time and expertise.

Hi Ken
No problem. I guess the world we live in requires instant answers. We do our best to respond as quickly as we can.

This site was not meant as a place to get immediate responses. Rather it is a place where people can present questions, and hopefully both the questioner and our other readers can learn from the answers.

Frankly, if a person needs an immediate answer, it should not be expected from us. A referee should go through their local referee organization or their assignor. A player or coach should go through the club organization.

Some other sites link to us - for which we are grateful! But people may not realize they are going away from their club or local ref site, and might think they should be getting a quick local response.
