Newbie Questions Board :: Proper Question Template

I decided that there needed to be a global template for asking questions on this forum. If anyone at all would like to contribute, please post ahead.



What is your problem:
What type is your problem (coding, models/materials, addon mods, gamemode, SWEP, Entity):
Is your code serverside, clientside, or shared:
How experienced are you at GLua (new, fair, very):
Did you receive an error:
If yes, what was the entire contents of this error:
If yes, what color was this error (blue, yellow, red):
Post the source of your error (in lua tags):

Example:

What is your problem: I don’t know how to draw a square on the screen.
What type is your problem (coding, models/materials, addon mods): coding
Is your code serverside, clientside, or shared: clientside
How experienced are you at GLua (new, fair, very): new
Did you receive an error: N/A
If yes, what was the entire contents of this error: N/A
If yes, what color was this error (blue, yellow, red): N/A
Post the source of your error (in lua tags): N/A

I used that :v:

Not to blow my own horn, but I think the template worked pretty nice for you. It helped me understand your problem better :smile:

You might add if it’s related to a SWEP, Gamemode, SENT, or something else.

Added.

My questions still never get answered :P, the past four questions were very informative… and the last one followed your format… still no responses.

Oh wells :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s probably because tmysql help is hard to come by in a Lua scripting section because only a few of us know MySQL and Lua.

Well then I guess I feel special that I know it somewhat. :stuck_out_tongue:

EDIT: you should also add like, the intention of the code… If you know what i mean. Errr… the goal your trying to achieve by fixing this.

(So they can help you if they know a more eficient way)

I don’t think people should have to stick to a strict template when asking questions, as long as they get all the information across it’s fine.

I think it’s intended for those who think they could use one.

Well of course they can just write what their asking, however I guess it’s meant as more of a way to steer future people into posting what is needed ETC.

Thread titles should also be descriptive. I don’t want to open a thread titled:


SHARED.LUA?!?!? OMG help

Why he might need help with his shared.lua maybe?

he meant like this title:


SHARED.LUA HELP!!! VIA darkrp

That should be like


shared.lua help. using DarkRp
