Tips

If there is an answer that helped you, don't forget to mark it as a solution. This way you will help people that had the same question.

Avoid answers like: "Thank you", "Problem solved"... Mark the answer as a solution instead. This way, everyone will see that the question was solved.

Be careful with expressions like: "kkkk", "lol". These make the text hard to read, lowers its credibility and people may not take it seriously.

Avoid greetings ("Hi, Joe", "My dear friends"...) and closures ("Cheers", "Cya" ...). Because answers are not chronological ordered, this type of message might confuse those who access the post in a near future.

F.A.Q.

  • What questions should I ask here?

    We expect clear, technical and elaborated questions that well explain your problem. Before making any question, verify if it wasn't already asked and solved. If your question is relevant, well written and clear, it will certainly be upvoted, people will always give you feedback.

  • What questions shouldn't I ask here?

    The forum is not for discussions, remind yourself of always making question based on problems you are facing. Vague questions and conversations are not ideal. This kind of questions only take the place of relevant questions in the front page.

  • Which questions show up in the front page?

    All asked questions are displayed in the front page.

  • How and when an edition is approved?

    An edition is only automatically approved if made by the original author or by a moderator. In any other case, the edition is queued and is sent to moderation analysis, therefore it's important that you indicate a reason on the edition's comment field.

  • I can't find my question, what happened to it?

    It was probably not relevant. Any questions with more than 5(five) downvotes are deleted and can't be visualized anymore.

  • I suddenly received or lost a lot of points, what happened?

    You received votes in a suspect way or exceeded the limit of reputation acquired in a given period. Avoid manipulating the voting system to gain reputation in a easy way; remember that the system's purpose is to help people and the reputation is only a consequence.
