Askville Tips Best Practices
Askville has a great community of people who are willing and happy to share their experiences and knowledge with you. Here are some tips and best practices to help you get started.
No one needs you to come up with a mindshattering query of immense intellectual magnitude. Although that would be welcome too! But if you are genuinely seeking a useful answer, then take care to ensure your question makes sense, uses the right grammar and spelling, and provide details where necessary. You can provide further details if you use up the first 120 characters in the sk a Question?box.
Details can be added after you submit your main question, then click on Details to provide more information.
Categorize your Question Properly
The best way to get your question seen by Askville members who might have the best and most helpful answers, is to take care to put them in the correct category. Our questions get automatically categorized, but this is not always accurate, depending on the words you use. We recommend that you check out our main categories by clicking on Categories up top, and take care that your question goes into the correct one. Our categories have subcategories to really drill it down, so if you have the time, check them out! The more accurate your categorization, the higher the chances of your question being seen and answered by someone who really knows the topic.
Answer Kindly and Thoughtfully
Sometimes, you might come across a question that seems silly to you. Before you answer with a witty or sarcastic jab, take a moment to stop and consider the person asking probably does not think it is silly, and might have done some research already, but really just wants a real person to answer based on real life experience. A funny response is totally welcome ?as long as you also take time to help the asker and answer the question. Just please keep in mind that what might be funny to you, might be hurtful to a newcomer to Askville, who does not know you very well.
Everyone likes to know that their thoughtful answer was received and appreciated. A little acknowledgment like a hank you very much!?goes a long way towards making your fellow community members feel good, and usually our members are happy to answer followup questions and discuss options with you. If you found something particularly funny, smart, or just great, feel free to send a compliment as well! Our members, like most people out there, thrive on positive feedback, and who knows, maybe you will make a friend as well.
Always remember that you can disagree without being disagreeable. Even if you feel another member is completely wrong, you can make your point without any namecalling, potshots, or insulting another member beliefs. If you feel that someone has crossed the line and violated our terms and guidelines, you may report abuse on the member question, answer or profile, and let the moderators take the appropriate action. You can also block another member private messages by going to the member profile page, and clicking on the little flower icon next to the user name, or from the Private Message box itself.
Customize your Profile, Pick Categories and People to Follow
It will help other members get to know you better if you put in a user picture/avatar and write a little blurb about yourself. If you love cooking and interior design, feel free to share that! If you are interested in Home Improvement and Consumer Electronics, you should follow those categories, and maybe any Askville members youe found to be particularly knowledgeable in those topics. This will allow you to get the most out of Askville as you will be able to quickly check out questions and answers in topics and by people you are interested in. Don forget that you can follow individual subcategories as well ?so let say you like cats but not dogs, then don follow ets? but just follow the ats?category!
