A few tips to get faster response for your problem

Hi,

I have been analyzing the unanswered questions in this category (and over larger discuss as well) to see what they did wrong to not attract community’s response. Based on that, I’d like to lay down a few pointers to help you get faster response on your questions posted here:

  1. Post submission link instead of code - Submission link gives link to problem and other details and makes it very convenient to help. Problems which paste code instead of link get marginally less response.

  2. Write logic of their code in description - This improves responses because it makes it easy to help you. If its easy to help you then you are sure to get a faster and better response from community on your issue.

  3. Give some time to debugging before asking help - Some questions there are of type which indicate the people are not spending enough time debugging. Please note that when you get a WA in your solution, it means your code fails on our hidden test data. It is suggested to try various inputs, re-read the problem statement and hence try debugging your code. This makes sure community is not clogged with too many questions and can spend time helping people who need it more.

These are some good guidelines @vijju123 . Just remember to phrase your question clearly and specify the approach you have taken and where exactly you need help. Please refrain from something obnoxious like ALL CAPS I NEED HELP WHY WA.
Also have a look at A Hitchhiker's Guide to Asking Questions!
Don’t ever hesitate to ask doubts though :slight_smile:
