Great website, garbage community. Apparently everyone here is a stuck up asshole who if you type a question that's too long to read (when it isn't), you'll get spammed with downvotes and your question will be put on hold. And this happens with a matter of seconds, not hours. "Like, holy fucking shit, your question is too long for my lazy fatass to read? You fucking inferior human being get out of our community" It's insane and hard to comprehend that a community this shit is actually allowed to exist.

There seriously needs to be a person with a brain to come along and moderate this website, because if there was, then half of the people there would be banned within a week.

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.

Fantastic Q&A for programming

about Stack Overflow and Quora · · Helpful Not helpful

Stack Overflow seems to the place to go if you have questions about programming! - For more general Q&A I would recommend Quora.

Yea, it's simply the best and has made the life of a developer so much easier.

Yes, totally agree, for that purpose it is great though
