A few tips for posting questions

Here are a few guidelines to assist and welcome you to the ask.oeruniversity neigbourhood:

  • Before you ask a question, please search for similar questions. Posting duplicate questions creates extra work for our academic volunteers. Posting duplicate questions when you have not taken the trouble to search the database is not a good way to earn community reputation.
  • Please avoid asking questions that are not relevant to our community, too subjective or argumentative. The ask.oeruniversity community is not the place for spirited and passionate debate about topics. The allocated course forums and the Internet provide the space for academic debate. The ask.oeruniversity aims to be an objective source for answers to support our learners. The community will take action against users who do not respect the purpose and intention of this peer-learning support facility.
  • The ask.oeruniversity is not a discussion group. Please avoid holding debates in your questions or answers as they dilute the purpose and essense of questions and answers. Please use the discussion forums and microblogs for discussions and debate in your respective courses.
