Jeff Atwood post new article about Asking Better Questions. Please read and help us enforce the quality of questions.
- if you see a great, thoughtfully asked, well researched question, vote it up — please! Great questions are an art!
- if you see an egregiously sloppy, no-effort-expended question that you feel was asked in bad faith ... vote it down.
- anything in between that’s salvageable, edit it. You can edit posts if you have 2000 rep or you can suggest an edit and gain 2 rep points if it's approved by someone with over 2000 rep.
Please use your votes.
Quoting RobertCartaino from chat:
Vote, vote, vote. Encourage others to vote, vote, vote. On good content, leave signposts ("If you like this, please vote it up. It's important for the community!")-- in both meta and the main site. Maybe a few meta posts informing the users of the important of that type of participation. You are empowered a lot more than you know.
