my question on blogging got put on hold for being unclear what help I need. Fair enough...


Then I am trying to understand how this substantially more vague question got through with 41 votes.

What techniques help retain programming knowledge?

In any case, how can I make my question more clear?

  • @gnat possible. one of the responses clearly says the site is not doing a good job of explaining its scope Feb 6, 2015 at 13:39
  • yeah I've seen this explained as sort of by-design: "On the smaller sites, I believe the idea is that, since they get less traffic than Stack Overflow, there's not as much of a disincentive to prevent people from posting, since the community can help users fix problems with their posts, or close, flag, and delete." Kinda, first you try and break your nose and after that we'll tell you to look at help center
