General announcement for the crowd: The Computer Science group is not for technical support questions. So, to be clear: Do ask: - Questions about data structures or algorithms. - Questions about why code you wrote isn't working. Don't ask: - For help with Microsoft Word - For help getting rid of a virus - For help jailbreaking your phone. - For us to write all of your code for you. (That's not what we're here for.) The general rule of thumb is this: if you would call a customer support hotline or read a manual to get help with your question, then this isn't really the best place to ask it. Thanks everyone! Study on. :)

    Interesting. — Why not Microsoft Word? That's Computers too, right? — That is strange. Just for trivia, the first question I ever answered on this site was about hacking. Haha. Additional question: — Am I allowed to ask questions related to Microsoft Access?(It's a main step because it involves databases).

    Once again, there is a distinction between the academic area of Computer Science and tech support. So, questions like "What is the difference between a foreign key and a private key?" would be acceptable. Questions like "How do I create a primary key in Microsoft Access" is borderline. Questions like "How do I change the font in Microsoft Word?" or "I have a virus! Help me!" are particular to the user's one situation. Not to a concept of Computer Science, and are not acceptable.

    It's funy how people want stuff like that, it's Comp Sci, not Tech Support.

    @farmdawgnation a suggestion that it should also include in rules list that don't ask for code,just try to write and if u have problem in ur code,u may ask but not ask for full-fledged code.

    Muhammad, that rule is assumed given that we don't give out "just answers" on OpenStudy as per the Code of Conduct ( http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct). But I could add one to this list as well.

    I totally agree with parth... I am just shocked but though "Rules are made to be obeyed" Hence sir thanks for making us aware about this announcement...

    you said " Don't ask: - For help with Microsoft Word" but some people use that and note for coding / web design you mean for like trying to type an essay and such ???

    if you code using a notpad/word you wouldn't ask abut word/notepad you would ask about the code.

    Konrad is correct. And yes. The kinds of questions I'm looking to avoid are things like "How do I right align text?" Or, "Word won't start how to fix?"
