  • While all questions are welcome, when asking questions in a community, it's demonstrates courtesy of others if you show that you have put some thought or effort into your questions (e.g., instead of "How do I get started?" you ask "I've looked at X, Y, and Z and I am still unsure of how to do X. Could you help me?")
