This post will detail what to do and not to do when asking and answering questions on Codecademy.
The Do's ✓
- Do format your code before posting.
- Do make sure you post your question in the right category.
- Do make sure you put the instructions, error and link to the exercise you are stuck on in your post.
- Do make sure you put the exercise number in the post title.
- Do ask for help if you need it!
The Don'ts ✘
- Don't ask for help on an exercise without posting code.
- Don't post your question more than once - a moderator will move it if needed, so you don't need to repost.
- Don't mention any of the staff groups, because this will send all members of that group a notification, and they get enough anyway, so we don't want to give them more.
- Don't post full working code without explanation.
- Don't give out personal details.
- Don't use bad language - Keep it PG here, please.
- Don't 'revive' topics that are old.
