It is important that questions and other service-specific messages are posted in the most relevant channel. For example, a question about an error with an iOS SDK should go in
#ios. Although general questions may be posted in
#general, the vast majority of troubleshooting questions are posted in service-specific channels.
Asking a good question
Well-formed questions are more likely to be answered by users of the Discord server than poorly-formed questions. Good questions are generally posted in the correct channel and include a thorough description of the development environment, copies of any error text, and screenshots. Before posting, think about how a Discord user without the context of your project will understand your question.
To get started, examples of good questions are listed below.
