Help! - A place to find help

Welcome to Help

What is help?

Help is an online tool to either find help, or help others. For example, if you are really good with back end, you can navigate to the search page, type in "back end" and "back-end", and quickly find people who need help with back-end.

And that's about it.

How * Help search * Works

The search works as follows:
When you post something to Help, you provide tags. Tags are one of the most important parts to a Help post. Without them, you will always be last in search results.
Lets say that there are three posts:

  • one with the tag of "back-end", "python".
  • one with the tags of "dev", "back-end", and "servers"
  • one last with "HTML", and "front-end"
    If you search (either at "/pleas" or "/search" - it does not matter, you will be routed to the same search URL) for "back-end" and "servers" you will get the results as follows:
  1. one with the tags of "dev", "back-end", and "servers"
  2. another with the tag of "back-end", "python".
  3. one last with "HTML", and "front-end"
    The results that are not relevant

What do you wish to do on help?

I have spent ~4 months working on this, and I hope that because of this work, no one will have to work that long again.

Profile icon

Just btw, I know

@sojs
, but apparently this is frowned upon by moderators (pinging multiple people like that), though it isn't in the rules. FYI

Profile icon
sojs

thank you!

@SudhanshuMishra

@MarcusWeinberger

I am adding a little link for that. It is currently tied to your gravatar. I am also adding a "change email" option.

@bwoop

Profile icon

haha! Cool!

@bwoop

Profile icon

Frowned upon? Welp. Bit too late to change it :|

@PYer

Profile icon

@sojs
i also can't seem to post comments without making another account or linking something else (which im not really comfortable with for security reasons)

Profile icon

2 major updates everyone

(And one in development!)
calm down mods

  • New Comment system!
    • sorry people who already had comments on your posts. those got deleted. Now, though, you dont need to sign up to an alternate service to comment. Works out of the box. (you do need to log in)
  • and also, you now get an email everytime you get a notification (acceptance, someone joins, comments, replies....)
    (and the in dev one)
  • soon there will be newsletters. This erases the need to do these comments where I ping all the voters and ensures that even if you did not upvote you will get an email
    (I will make an email validation thing, but for now there isnt, so just go to your settings (@ -> settings) and change your email to a valid one)
    (You do have the option to turn off either newsletter emails (no more than once a week I promise, and only for important stuff), and notifications (I would keep these on- that way you can reply)

@sojs

Profile icon

@sojs
actually no, spam pinging is never a good idea :) make a new post if you've updated the original repl significantly

Profile icon
sojs

hmmm I feel like thats farming....

@DynamicSquid

Profile icon
DynamicSquid

@sojs
nope, as long as you don't spam post and actually made a significant enough change

Profile icon

@sojs
oo nice work .. really awesome

Profile icon

No joking, this is literally the best thing on repl.it!

Profile icon

Niice!!! I asked a question

Profile icon
PYer

Like Stack Overflow, but implementing replit! Pretty cool. It would be kind of cool if instead of inviting people to the repl, you could contact them privately and see if you would like to work with them.
Pretty cool though!

Profile icon
sojs

yup that was one of my original ideas, but it is very hard to implement. That is what the "comments" are supposed to replace. Also, read the github wikis, there is a section about that.

@PYer

Profile icon
DynamicSquid

Nice concept! The web design is also really cool :)

Profile icon
sojs

thank you!

@DynamicSquid

Profile icon
sojs

what I find funny is that my life would have been a whole lot easier if one of these existed already. I looked at the repl created date and it was like 4 months ago. Welp.

@DynamicSquid

To tell you the truth, though, the hardest part was making the graphics, there all home-made. :) (With canva but whatever)

Profile icon
DynamicSquid

@sojs
The graphics turned out great! Especially your homepage, it's really engaging and clean!

Profile icon
sojs

thank you!

wow! this deserves a lot more upvotes, and i can see how much time and effort you put in!

Profile icon

wow thanks! It took a month or 2. But now after making it I see a lot of flaws with the idea.
