[meta] Expand FAQ "What should I avoid in my answers?"

Avatar
Daniel Reis

This section of the FAQ should be expanded to make clear that:

  • Answers should not add or expand questions. Instead either edit the question edit or add a question comment.
  • Answers should not comment other answers. Instead add a comment on the other answers.
  • Answers shouldn't just point to other Questions. Instead add a question comment indication "Possible duplicate of...". However, it's ok to include links to other questions or answers providing relevant additional information.
  • Answers shouldn't just provide a link a solution. Instead provide the solution description text in your answer, even if it's just a copy/paste. Links are welcome, but should complementary to answer, referring sources or additional reading.

I also agree. Perhaps there is scope to expand further - for example: there was some good answers on the use of the title field in this thread http://help.openerp.com/question/1367/meta-how-to-use-the-title-field/

And also someone should close this question as "not real question". )

That is true, although the [meta] tag indicates this is for general discussion regarding the site rather than an actual question. Please refer to this thread for discussion regarding the use of the [meta] tag: http://help.openerp.com/question/518/
