Asking questions is a great way to get supports or helps as a Gitcoin user. But it is important to know how to ask good questions so support team can effectively help you.
In this post, I would walk through how to ask good questions on Gitcoin (discord and knowledge base).
There is a great post from freeCodeCamp named Read - Search - Ask. So before asking, make sure to do some research by yourself, there are lots of informations and tools you could choose.
Here I would like to introduce some tips:
- Mee6 bot for FAQ
- Support knowledge base
- Search feature on discord
- Google it
If you have any questions related with Gitcoin product, you should join our Gitcoin Discord Server.
support role in #start-here channel. And then join #general-support channel. In support channel, we have deployed Mee6 bot for the FAQ list.
Please issue the command
!faq to get the faq list.
