This website focuses more on policing how you ask the question, rather than actually taking the time to answer your specific problem. I asked an extremely specific question about variables resetting, and how many if/else statements I need.

Find somewhere else to get your answers.

I didn't like StackOverflow, I hate it! they put so many downvotes and if you are a person learning to use it or to programming you will be blocked because you receive too many downvotes the only persons that receive upvotes are the person that joined to StackOverflow 10 years ago!

Terrible. Have a question you want answered? Well too bad! Get downvoted!

If you want to be troll fodder for the moderators and such, go there. Some stuff is weak code seeded by hackers. If you ask a question that doesn't have a text book answer, it gets down voted. It used to be a nice site till the trolls took over as moderators, and down vote or delete questions.

This site tries to cater to the programming community, but its a gimmick to try to sell you "advice" that can be obtained free.

This web site has a big community grow up like worms after rain. Don't ask the question first go and search! The question that comes to your mind has already been asked a million times! Minuse is - when you ask the question you need to waste lot of days or maybe weeks, for this I find a good alternative to post on other forums "cross-post".
