Please don't think that I want you to leave. I am complaining. I would like the questions (in their current form) to stop. But I'd also like a new member of the community. The following are my suggestions for how to ask questions on the robowiki:


1) Make sure your question is closely related to Robocode. It can be about algorithms that are not specific to Robocode, but it should be about the algorithms as applied to Robocode.

2) Make sure you punctuate your questions. It's not hard. Furthermore, it makes them easier to read.

3) Make sure you pay attention to the answers you receive. Read them before replying.

4) Make sure you thank people for helping you. We are all busy and have other things to do.

5) Make sure you have some understanding of the subject about which you are asking. If you don't, answering your questions isn't worth our time.

6) Make sure you search for an answer to the question before asking it. Use the search box in the left and/or google unless you know the information isn't easily available.


I'm glad you are interested in what I found to be the best way to learn programming, but I think that following the above guidelines will help you to learn.

Do you have any questions? Ask away.

Yep, I'm a jerk.

Punctuation error: "If you don't answering your questions isn't worth our time." Comma should be added after don't

Actually, I think the comma is optional on a short introductory phrase, such as the one I used. I'll include it anyways. More importantly(,) I ended a sentence with a preposition and said that the search box was on the right... It's better now.

Actually, it appears that I'm wrong and the comma is required for introductory clauses. Introductory phrases need commas depending on the length of the phrase.

As am I.

"Make sure your question is closely related to [Robocode]. It can be about algorithms that are not specific to [Robocode], but [it] should be about the algorithms as applied to [Robocode]."

Good advice, and kind of you to take the time to post this.

Hi Tmservo, Welcome to the RoboWiki. Are you Human?

(is Skilgannon's 'new Bot' designing itself now? )

) Cheers
