Asking Questions

This has everything in it on how to ask questions correctly.

In short, it can be summed down to this:

  1. Do your own research first.
  2. Include things you have tried and thought of before asking the question.
  3. Be explicit about what you want to achieve in the end and provide as much information as possible to help.
  4. Respect other people's time.

Notes

  • It can be all too easy to forget your audience has no idea what you’re talking about beyond what you tell them.
  • When proposing feature requests, "for me" is never a good argument for a feature request.
    • If I want someone to add a feature to their software, show how it would be useful to lots of users.
