As a follow-up on: What’s the “elevator pitch” for our site?

What should our documentation contain? What is our site about and what not?

1 Answer 1


Ask about ...

  • Specific issues with Ethereum, the smart contract enabled blockchain based consensus network, including Swarm and Whisper protocols
  • Specific issues with Solidity, Serpent programming languages and the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)
  • Specific issues with smart contracts, decentralized applications and the web 3.0
  • Real problems or questions that you’ve encountered

Don't ask about ...

  • Anything not directly related to the Ethereum, Swarm or Whisper protocols
  • Questions that are primarily opinion-based
  • Questions with too many possible answers or that would require an extremely long answer
  • I don't know if I agree with the second part of the sixth bullet. The length of the answer shouldn't disqualify asking a question. What questions or situations did you have in mind for that rule to apply? Apr 3, 2016 at 21:39
  • Actually the points #3, 5, and #6 are Stack Exchange defaults. The 6th is targeted at questions which are considered too broad, e.g. "What is Ethereum?"
