Hello, here at BleepingComputer we have many topics being posted every day and only a certain number of users who like to reply and help, because of this it may take some time to get a reply to your topic, please be patient, when someone can answer your topic they will, we are all volunteers here and have lives and family that come first. Also some may not know how to answer your question so it can take time for the right person to come by and be able to answer your question, bumping your topic will only cause a potential helper to think you are being helped by seeing you have replies in your topic also. 

If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.

Then what if my post does not get replied for 1 weeks or even months? Will my post be deleted, or should I make a new post?

At this time there is no reason to worry about the "what if's". Your post did receive a reply.

IF you post in the future you post a topic and no responds (but please give it a while and not bump the post shortly after making it) then you can bring to the attention of the forum.

One other thing to consider since your location is Seoul, South korea per your profile. This forum is US based and the vast majority of members and visitors are in the US time zones. That means that whatever time you post you can expect anywhere from 11 to 14 hours time difference. For example your first post here was at 4 a.m. my time. Most of the US isn't even awake. Nor are the vast majority of people who might see your post. This does not mean only US visitors and members will reply. But the numbers mean that your odds of getting a reply area heavily in favor of a US based reply. So with that in mind take into account world time zones.

Realistically you need to give a post 24 hours before claiming you're being ignored. But like others have said. You may have a problem that very few and possibly no one has an answer for. Plus you can have views from non registered guests. But only registered members can reply. So a view does not necessarily mean that person ignored you or didn't know. They may know but can't reply because they are not a member. And for whatever reason choose not to join for a single reply.

These are just some of the things to take into account, that go on with a world wide membership and visitorship. When considering views vs replies, and when to think your topic is not getting the attention you feel it deserves.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
