Asking questions, the right way
When asking questions in the #rubyonrails channel, please follow these 12 simple rules. Can't count that high? The first 7 will get you in most people's good books.
- Do your research beforehand. Your question may be answerable with a quick Google search or by simply experimenting. If you're using a method in Rails, look it up in the API Docs or in the Official Guides.
- If you've tried Googling, explain what terms you've tried to use so people can better help you.
- Clearly explain what is happening and create a Gist (http://gist.github.com) or Pastie (http://pastie.org) of the code that is causing the problem you are encountering, as well as any useful output like stacktraces. A "Full Trace" as opposed to the default "Application Trace" is preferred. NO FAKE CODE. If you're under an NDA, we cannot help you with your problem. Go hire a consultant.
- **Do not use any service that is not Pastie or Gist
