I think that we need a content box which informs users (especially new users) about minimum requirements for posting a question (e.g. version of Magento if applicable). What would we all like to see in this content area? Curious to know too if StackExchange platform allows for this as well.
Suggestions for a popup on the "Ask question" page:
- Always specify your Magento version
- If you have questions about custom code, please include the relevant code, and explain current and desired behavior
- If you have questions about an error, read Debugging Fundamentals first, and gather information about the error
- Questions about problems with commercial extensions do not belong here. Please contact the extension vendor support instead.
The list should not be longer than 5 items, otherwise nobody will read it.
This is what we should have, beside all helping links:
