Hi guys, basically I felt the need that OS has to have rules that people have to follow some basic template of posting their problem. Continued on next comment

    Continuing from what I previously mentioned, The OS needs to have a set of predefined enforced guidelines. I have seen your guidelines but many people don't follow it. I have seen many people just asking for answers for the sake of solving the question, basically for online tests and there are many users looking for medals who promptly give the answer. This is very unfortunate but true. I will show you an example. http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/4fa3e83ee4b029e9dc346b66 . I have seen another forum ( physicsforums.com ) and they have really effectively enforced this rule. See here -->http://physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=94379 This really is the aim of OS and I think that OS should be looking to enforce this upon the users here.

    This is a good idea. Anyways, I have issued official warning to both of them. If you see such behavior again please report abuse. Thanks for your help.

    Yeah we've talked about adding some informational text near the reply box, StackOverflow style. We'll see what comes of it. Thanks for the suggestion!
