Maybe we also need a reminder when you're creating a post for certain tags... For example if you try and publish something and you use the "help" tag, a popup asks you to confirm if you're asking for help, or giving it. If you're asking, it keeps the tag. If you're offering help, it removes it.
It's a good idea, I think education/moderation should be tried before adding more steps though 😄
Hi Si, #beginners & #python mod here. You can actually send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to moderate the #help tag 😄
Ah I didn't know that, maybe I will 😊
No pressure 😊 We all have our own jobs aside from being a mod at DEV 😊
I've emailed 😄 - It'd be good to make it a place where people can come and ask for help.
Thanks for the heads up!
Maybe making it more like stackoverflow 🙃 but thank you that actually help others 😁
The joys of language. Not everyone "gets" the implied difference between "help" (i.e., seeking assistance) and "howto" (i.e., offering assistance – frequently simplified – with a topic).
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
