Help! - A place to find help

sojs
sojs

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?


Important links:

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.

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

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

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)

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!

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.

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)
