Questions are good! Asking questions helps you learn and helps improve the materials so that they can answer such questions before others ask them again in the future. See also the list of all questions

Asking questions and posting answersEdit

Questions about concepts covered in the course must be posted as comments about the relevant wiki pages before the Lecturer will attempt to answer them.

If you want to ask a question about a slide that does not yet have a wiki page, then you may create the wiki page for that slide, and be sure to use the convention for page Identifiers.

Q&A must include a poll, and you should update the central record of Q&A

Polls for Q&AEdit

When adding a question or answer, include in your comment a poll that asks what others think of the question/answer. The value of such polls is that when questions are ranked by popularity then the most Frequently Asked Questions can be made more prominent and so easier to find answers to, and users could be given credit/karma as an incentive to providing useful (?=?popular) answers. Note that Wikia's polling is imprecise in that it bases votes on IP addresses: One person could vote multiple times from machines with different IP addresses, and multiple people whose votes pass through an address translator may be considered by Wikia to be one and be only able to vote once.

Central record of Q&A

When you post a question, please list the question in the All questions page. Your entry on that page must start with the 2 character code of the page on which you posted the question. The All questions page will then form a central collection point that the lecturer can monitor to identify questions that need answering.
