Can we be a bit quicker to close (downvote) questions?
(a little harsh, but a necessary step to becoming a great community)

What is serial voting and how does it affect me?

Random tips / guidelines / requests / rules for using StackOverflow:

  • Unless you have extensive experience with a site, don't recommend it (especially Programmers), or at least add "I think that maybe possibly there's a chance, but I'm not at all sure"
  • How much research effort is expected of Stack Overflow users?
  • What should I do when someone answers my question?
  • Be kind
  • Format properly
    • Look at the preview
    • Don't fear line breaks
    • Indent code properly
  • Don't robo-approve
  • Don't post duplicate or non-answering answers. Also, don't upvote these
  • Always post an SSCCE
  • Stick around for a while after asking a question to answer comments
  • Pop in every now and again to tend to responses until you have an accepted answer
  • Don't down-vote and leave. Give some time for it to be fixed. Preferably comment. Don't down-vote minor issues like minor syntax errors
  • Don't be a help vampire. (My) summary:
    • Give enough details so the question is answerable. We're not psychic
    • Don't ask for a program to be written for you
    • Learn, don't just want an answer
    • Look elsewhere for the answer before asking a question
  • Don't duplicate questions, there are reasons questions don't get answered
  • Stack Overflow question checklist
