    Pooja, this is a homework answer place. People come here to ask for help on their home work, this leads to learning about the concepts that cause them problems with their homework in the first place. What you can do is make sure you are giving them help, explanations and all that - not just answers.

    If it helps, @pooja195 I know exactly how you feel. My technique is to basically tell users (who aren't used to my tactics yet) point blank, "I am here to *help* you get the answer. So I'm going to need you to do some of this work." Sometimes I ask if they have a guess, or if they're completely lost. If the user just wants answers, I refer them to the OpenStudy Code of Conduct and tell them that while I am willing to HELP, I can't just give the answer, as well as theconsequences for just giving out/asking for just answers. My whole thing is to help users understand. Users who are used to me know not to just ask me for answers, and they tend to ask more in-depth questions now.

    Those are the users who just don't want to learn, unfortunately. There's always going to be someone who just wants the easy way out. But I have found that my technique weeds out the people who want fast answers from those who want to understand the concepts and the subjects themselves. And those are the people I focus on, and those are the people I will definitely help when they mention me or PM me with a question.

    @pooja195 Hmm, I see what you mean. Yeah. Well, like I said above^^ this is a classic example of "Do my work *for* me; I don't want to work myself."

    Thanks for bringing this up, @prooja. An issue, sure, but not such a huge one nevertheless. I've obviously encountered this, as I was the one experiencing this in the example prooja posted on this thread. Look, I just link to the COC. My help is better then nothing. I don't want to do anything about it. I'm glad with what we're doing now. We kinda put them in a situation that we offer our help, but don't do all the thinking for them. We want them to understand. So they're forced to understand what we give them. It's a good thing. They learn to be a little more independent. At the same time, they learn a thing or two. If they complain, who cares. They can't really (obviously) do without our help, and since we're not going do all the thinking for them, they HAVE to use the help we provide, it's better then nothing. They have to use that help, to improve their mind.
