Dear Yeva, Thanks for your information and congratulations with the beautifull Sololearn app ! Maybe Sololearn team can create a course with certificate, just like a HTML course, how to ask the right questions, to work and search efficiently, to learn the correct guidelines, to use the appropriate tags etcetera etcetera ? After the course : 1. A bonus of 1000 xp. 2. A certificate. 3. A Sololearn Good Conduct badge. 4. Sololearn Good Conduct challenges. Greetings 🐈 ps : I am just a silly cat.

funny you mention that cyk 😅 https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/103783/?ref=app there is actually a FAQ section in here: https://www.sololearn.com/faq it just might need to be accessible via the app (and maybe expanded a bit) and here is an unofficial FAQ by Mario L. https://code.sololearn.com/W7X805sc4DPC/?ref=app

I hope this somewhat stems the flow of duplicate and/or unrelated questions. Also a suggestion: Limit the amount of images/gifs any user can post to once per day. That way sololearn servers won't have as much traffic to deal with, which means no more weird lagging.

great idea 😉

It was really useful. 👍👍👌 For those who may concern about guidelines and doesn't have time/motivation to open it: If your content/post is not specifically on-topic, it can be deleted. Deletions made to questions by SoloLearn moderators, in case: - Content is created with the purpose of attracting spam content. - Posts that are incoherent or otherwise impossible to answer meaningfully, and would not be improved by straightforward edits. - Posts that focus on the promotion of a product or service. - Posts that include inappropriate language, content, or reference.

Post only programming-related QUESTIONS and ANSWERS; well, you just violated that rule;-) just kidding

Note: We should not create celebration threads in QA

Thanks for posting this. Hope it achieves its goal... I think creating a section FAQs where the most common questions and the best answers to these are posted can be very helpful. Just like in the Discussion section we can choose to see trending questions, unanswered question, our own questions and such, I believe the option to see the FAQs could help resolve the issue of duplicate questions... Cheers and keep up the good work at SoloLearn! We, on this side, absolutely love it!

I'm glad to see this! ...and in addition to the above guidelines, you should also read the newly updated Sololearn Privacy Policy at: https://www.sololearn.com/Terms-of-Use/ to learn more about the way your data is being handled by sololearn and whenever you see any community member who's not following the rules, please don't attack the person just report to the Moderators they'll take care of it, who knows you might become a moderator by making reports. Thanks for being here!

"...regardless of why you made your post..." - Fata1 Err0r the author of this post (Yeva) is SoloLearn's CEO & co-founder. I believe she's been listening to mods and the community's opinions about cleaning the Q&A and preventing off-topic threads from being posted. We needed her official words to back up our own 😊. I agree with you though, this post should somehow be pinned at the top. Or better yet, the message should be spread out across other sections in the app or when we first access the Q&A ☺

+46

But why is this a Q&A thread instead of a post? 🤔🤔🤔

+46

Good idea.

+45

A great thread for all user especially for beginners who doesn't know what to do and mess all around over Q/A section.. Yeva thanks... ☺ #sololearn_changing #better_sololearn

Funny how all of the spammers appear to spam in a thread about not spamming. Or how a spam thread is created for the purpose of stopping spam through spamming. Or how in this scenario no one appeared to post 50+ links to all of the threads exactly like this one. Life is funny sometimes. :) Anyways, thanks I suppose? It's basically the same post that the mods copy/paste to the spammers/etc.. when they're actively violating the rules or the other numerous threads like this one that they link people to. I'm not sure how this will deter those people, since it's not stickied/pinned to the forum, but at least for day or a couple days, they'll see it which is good. The true answer is simply being strict about the guidelines, add a warning/ban system that's used, and force people to follow the rules. That's best method in my opinion, especially considering how many corners of the world this discussion area is exposed to. It is what it is, and regardless of why you made your post (genuine or personal), thanks for doing so.
