Where is my question? / Why is my question not answered?

We try to answer all questions submitted to us. But if your question is not answered and it’s been more than two weeks, chances are:

a) You submitted a duplicate question which is already answered in the forum. Try searching the site using the search bar.

b) Your question was incomplete, irrelevant or too short and too easy, adding no value to the site. That’s why we removed it.

c) You violated our Terms of Service.

d) You submitted an incorrect email address and so the answer was not delivered to you. Your question may have actually been answered. Search the forum.

e) Your question requires a very lengthy, explanatory answer and our authors have not found enough time to attempt an answer for that.

If you are still in doubt, please reach out to us at

Are Englicist explanations / answers accepted by the board or council?

On a general level, there is no stated rules as to the acceptance of a particular answer, especially in literature. Of course it’s accepted if it has sense. But in some cases, if you go against the standard accepted explanation of a piece, it may not be accepted by the board or council. Please ask your class teachers if you are in doubt.

At Englicist, the explanations and the answers are only for general educational purposes and do not contain any guarantee or warranty whatsoever as to the accuracy, correctness, completeness, suitability or acceptance. We are not affiliated to any board, council or university. Kindly read our terms of services page for complete disclaimer.
