## What kinds of questions can I ask here?

Most importantly - questions should be relevant to this community. Before you ask - please make sure to search for a similar question. You can search questions by their title or tags.

Each question and answer can be commented – the comments are good for limited discussions, and to clear up any uncertainties about a question.

## What kinds of questions should be avoided?

Please avoid asking questions that are not relevant to this community, too subjective and argumentative.

Also, if you have a specific hardware design you want to have reviewed, or a problem of which you are uncertain of the cause, you may be better off by posting a regular support case.

## What should I avoid in my answers?

Nordic Developer Zone is a question and answer site - it is not a discussion group. Please avoid holding debates in your answers as they tend to dilute the essense of questions and answers. For the brief discussions please use commenting facility.

## Who moderates this community?

The short answer is: you. This website is moderated by the users. Reputation system allows users to earn rights to perform a variety of moderation tasks

## How does reputation system work?

When a question or answer is upvoted, the user who posted them will gain some points, which are called "reputation points". These points serve as a rough measure of the community trust to him/her. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to the users based on those points.

For example, if you ask an interesting question or give a helpful answer, your input will be upvoted. On the other hand if the answer is misleading - it will be downvoted. Each vote in favor will generate 10 points, each vote against will subtract 10 points. There is a limit of 200 points that can be accumulated for a question or answer per day. The table below explains reputation point requirements for each type of moderation task.

1 upvote
50 downvote
1 accept own answer to own questions
20 retag other's questions
500 delete any comment

## Why can other people can edit my questions/answers?

Goal of this site is to provide the best possible answers. To achieve this, we've made it so that questions and answers can be edited like wiki pages by experienced users of this site. Hopefully this should improve the overall quality of the knowledge base content.

## How does searching work?

Type your question in the search bar and see whether a similar question has been asked before.

• to search in title - enter [title: your text]
• to search by tags - enter [tag: sometag] or #sometag
• to search by user - enter [user: somename] or @somename or @"some name"

In addition, it is possible to click on tags to add them to the search query.

## How does voting work?

Voting helps to select best answers and thank most helpful users. Unless there is something in particular, it's much better to vote an answer or comment up than to post a thank-you reply or comment!

Please vote when you find helpful information, it really helps the community.
