The Guideline project:

Planning new guide, topic "Posting a new question - General", and this old guide here needs to be expanded to a full answer, notifying the high importance of search already in this general part. I wrote one from the scracth below, leaving away the comment regarding priority. Do you think it should be included anuway?

Reading @Markkyboy 's comment also gave me a boost in this porject (thanks). Yeah, the guides should be attractive, attractive enough to link to - definitely not something like visible here (question + couple of comments). I'll focus on the looks. Content could be like:

Posting a new question - General

First, all questions are good questions, and especially when they can be answered. Just make sure your question is not already asked. Always use search (link to guide)

After being sure, note that there are different type of questions, each having some characteristics, even requirements, detailed under the following guides. Pick yours:

  • Posting ideas and feature request
  • Posting bug reports
  • Creating a poll
  • Creating a wiki post
  • Other types of posts

ps. Avoid asking any question in answers! Those are supposed to be ANSWERS

The guideline project discusses on these old guideline posts until September 20th, updating and gathering information from here to a new post The Guideline. You're welcome to join the project, for example by editing and commenting this answer.
