Welcome to Techzim Answers - how to use this site
Techzim answers is a community driven questions and answer site where our main mission is to help each other with answers to technology questions. While we are a Zimbabwean site, technology knows no borders and any question about tech anywhere is welcome.
Here are some things to keep in mind when using the site
- Make sure your question is clear. In addition to the main question title, enter some details to ensure people understand exactly what problem you facing or what information you seek.
- To get answers in the most efficient way, avoid asking anonymously. Register on the site (simply using Facebook, or by creating an account here) and that way yo can select the best answer to your question, vote on answers, and edit your question to clarify it.
- When you enter a question, it is recommended that you enter some tags as a way to classify the question for other people to find it easily.
- When you enter a question, the site looks for similar questions that have been asked and answered before. Check these questions before going ahead as your issue may already have been answered.
- When your question is answered and you are satisfied with the answer, please select the answer as the "best", this way, other people that have the same questions know what worked for you.
- If not satisfied with the answers given so far, please respond to the people that answered why this doesn't answer you by commenting on their answers.
- If you decide to answer a question, make sure it is an answer and not a something else, e.g. asking for clarification. To ask for clarification, choose instead to comment on the question.
- Even when you don't have an answer, sometimes it is helpful to point the person in the general direction of the answer.
- Remember that we were all new at everything at some point and needed help. be nice to others in your answers and comments.
