  • Please leave relevant and informative comments.

Answering Questions

As a general rule of thumb if you don’t know what you’re talking about don’t try to answer the question out of good will. 99% of the time it will get rejected.

  • Don’t leave answers that are vague and not 100% related to the question. It’s easy to leave a related answer but much more diffcult to give the exact answer.
  • Answers must be detailed and in general should only be posted once per question, unless the original asker asks you to elaborate on what you’ve written.
