There's all these people asking questions that are easily solvable with a stackoverflow search. Is it fine if I redirect them?
So, I'm seeing a lot of threads that are about people who want to know information about how to do a specific thing.
Now, as much as I want the sololearn discussions to grow larger, it isn't always the best source for these kinds of questions.
I want your thought if wheter or not I sould simply send them a link with a thread identical to their question, that has the answer they're looking for.
Well the people here are usually absolute beginners and english is not the first language of many of them so I cut them some slack. And try to answer in simple english.
StackOverflow can be a bit unhelpful in that regard.
However, if the OP has shown a decent level of english proficiency, and I find a fitting answer on SO, then I will pass the link along, sure.
But please keep in mind, that we have young and unexperienced user.
Stackoverflow is a platform for experienced coder( in my personal opinion ) .
So a precheck if the answer can be understood would be nice.
For advanced questions a Stackoverflow is normally a welcome contribution.
