- For Teachers
People who are about to respond would be put off by your reminders.
As Tdol explained, it's not very polite. Like tedtmc, I am often put off by reminders. If I am giving up my free time to answer questions, I do not react well when people remind me that they are still waiting. Waiting for what - for me to deal with them more quickly?
I do not expect gratitude for doing what I enjoy doing, but I will not be pushed. I'll just move elsewhere and deal with someone who is waiting patiently.

You should have put it in a more subtle and polite way then, instead of 'giving a reminder'.
Learning a language also includes learning to say things in a polite way or you get misunderstood as being pushy or rude.
I have told you at least twice before, hooshdar3, that saying "please" and "thank you" are essential in learning English and understanding the cultures of the English speaking world. People are less apt to respond to questions simply thrown at them without a modicum of civility or politeness (see your first post).
I will no longer be responding to your posts. Best of luck in your future endeavors.
