How do I write a good post?


The better your question is, the easier it is for someone to answer it. The better your response is, the easier it is to understand. Here are a few guidelines on writing good posts:

Make your question complete and self-contained yet concise

Please avoid questions like “How do I do #42?” - rather, state the problem completely. Even if it’s from a textbook, you might need more context to make the problem clear here. Nonetheless, you don’t want to exclude irrelevant or extraneous information.

Format your post well

You can format your post using Markdown as described in this post. You can also add image, typeset mathematics, tabular data, and computer code. A well formatted post is easier to read!
