Hint: Software Engineering Stack Exchange doesn't do coding help and expect research before asking

Sometimes, we at Software Engineering get a stream of troublesome questions from folks with linked accounts at Math.SE. One of them was kind enough to explain why they get there:

my friends told me that "stack exchange" is undergraduate or master level, and "stack overflow" is PhD or research level. I think my question is very basic, so I asked here

Another user, familiar with many other sites, even figured what could lead to such a misconception:

This "exchange" is the undergraduate while "overflow" is the graduate level may because of the idea for Math vs MathOverflow and Physics vs PhysicsOverflow (not SE related) leaking into other domains. While I don't believe that that naming distinction needs to be fixed (nor can we do anything about it), being able to more promptly close (and delete) the debugging and blatantly off topic questions with a minimum of additional community moderation needed.

It is sad to observe how many of them have fallen victims of this misunderstanding, getting their questions heavily voted down, closed and deleted. This includes even established users having over 1K rep at Math.SE (1, 2).

Things many Math.SE folks seem to miss when they try their luck at Software Engineering are:

  • coding and debugging help is off-topic at Software Engineering.SE
  • it is generally expected of askers to demonstrate research they did before asking
