###[Q] Problem dump We discourage posts that simply state a problem out of context, and expect the community to solve it. Assuming you tried to solve it yourself and got stuck, it may be helpful if you wrote your thoughts and what you could not figure out. It will definitely draw more answers to your post. Until then, the question will be voted to be closed / downvoted. You may also want to check out these hints, or use the search engine of this site to find similar questions that were already answered.

###[Q] No effort shown, no specific question What have you tried? Where did you get stuck? We do not want to just hand you the solution; we want you to gain understanding. However, as it is we do not know what your underlying problem is, so we can not begin to help. See here for tips on asking questions about exercise problems. If you are uncertain how to improve your question, why not ask around in [chat]?

###[A] Answers problem dump Please consider not to encourage undesirable posting behaviour.

###[Q] Homework grading This question appears to be unsuited for this site because questions of the form: "This is the exercise problem, this is my solution. Please grade!" are not interesting for anyone but you. Please see this related meta discussion, and these hints on asking questions about exercise problems. If you want to ask a specific question about a specific part of your attempt, please edit the question accordingly and it may be reopened. Otherwise, you might want to visit [chat] and get some feedback there.

###[C] Programming question (migrate to SO) Your question is off-topic here: we deal with computer science questions, not programming questions (see our [FAQ]). Your question might be on-topic on [SO].

###[C] Bad programming question Your question is off-topic here: we deal with computer science questions, not programming questions (see our [FAQ]). Your question might be on-topic for [SO], however you may need to clarify it. You can revise your question to improve clarity and re-post it on [SO].

###[C] Unclear Thank you for posting this question. Unfortunately, your question is unclear, and it is very unlikely anyone could answer it without further details. In particular, [type here]. We will put the question on-hold for the time being, but you will still be able to edit and improve it. Once you clarify the question you can flag it to get our attention. See our [FAQ#close] for further details!

###[C] Duplicate of a reference question Your question is a very basic one. Since you did not include much of an attempt to solve it on your own, we have little to work with. Let me direct you towards our reference questions which cover your problem in detail. Please work through the related questions listed there, try to solve your problem again and edit to include your attempts along with the specific problems you encountered. Your question may then be reopened. Good luck!

###[Q] Simple answer to famous problem You are claiming to have a solution for a well-known, difficult open problem. This is an extraordinary claim requiring extraordinary evidence. You have not provided such so there is not much to talk about. Even if you had, this would not be a good post for SE; it is not our goal here to make broad advances to science in a single post. See here for a related discussion.

###[Q] List question We don't have a strict policy for list questions, but there is a general dislike. Please note also this and this discussion; you might want to improve your question as to avoid the problems explained there. If you are not sure how to improve your question maybe we can help you in [chat]?

###[Q] Study advice (projects topics, course selection, ...) Unfortunately, your question is not a good fit for the Stack Exchange format. We prefer questions that have objectively correct answers that will be useful both to the asker and others who have the same question in the future. What is or is not a suitable topic for study, projects or research is very much a matter of opinion and depends crucially on the interests and skills of the person who will be doing the work and the support that will be available to them. This is a question that you should be asking your professors.

###[Q] Broad Reference Request A reference request like yours is too broad for Stack Exchange -- you ask for a survey of a whole research area! You need to narrow your focus considerably before a question of reasonable scope appears. Try talking to your advisor(s), search with Google Scholar and check out this guide to better (re)searches on [academia.SE].

###[Q] Mathematics question This is a pure mathematics question without any obvious relation to CS (despite being part of a foundational mathematics curriculum for CS students). Hence, it belongs on [math.SE]. Please flag this question for migration, or delete and repost there.

###[Q] Reference material may help Your question is a very basic one. Let me direct you towards our reference questions which cover some fundamentals you seem to be missing in detail. Please work through the related questions listed there, try to solve your problem again and edit to include your attempts along with the specific problems you encountered. Good luck!

###[Q] Crosspost [Also posted on [type here].SE]([type here]). Please do not post the same question on multiple sites. Each community should have an honest shot at answering without anybody's time being wasted. If you don't get a satisfying answer after a week or so, you may flag to request migration.

###[Q] Post is mainly an image Don't use images as main content of your post. This makes your question impossible to search and inaccessible to the visually impaired; we don't like that.
