Definitely not "Waiting for your replies" - that smacks of impatience, and is likely to deter people from responding.

How about "I will pay $10 to everybody who answers my question?"

This is good if its a must know answer , but i think forum Bartenders will not respond in this case , which will be a huge loss .

Personally, I don't think you need to write anything.

"Thanks in advance" means (in my mind) "I'm too lazy to check back and let you know if your answer helped me or not".

"Please share your views..." is un-needed - why else would I post a question to a forum if I don't want people to share their views?

"Waiting for your replies" - this is implied already.

"Thanks for reading" - again, this sounds insincere at best.

I think there is nothing wrong with a post that simply has the necessary info and the question. If someone provides an answer that helps, reply to that with a "Thanks - that made it perfectly clear" or "Hmm...I still don't understand X,Y and Z".

of course, I've been called a curmudgeon before, so what do I know?

+1 Fred

(Yeah, I could use the new "like" button, but then it's not clear who is doing the liking...)

"Thanks in advance " : You should thank after your problem is solved.
"Please share your views on this" : You're asking something, so obviously somebody is going to share his views, no need to say
"Waitng for your replies " : Obviously !
"Thanks for reading" : You're welcome. But in a forum, people will read posts. Nothing to be grateful about.

I think that if you SayThanks after somebody helped you, it's enough.

How about "Microsoft will pay $10 to each who answers this question. They also pay $8 for each subsequent reply"

To sound really good, IMO try calling for help like a damsel in distress. Or maybe sound like plain dumb hehe

It's often helpful to quote Dr. Strangelove. "I can no longer sit back and allow ... the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids."
