Introducing ASK Unixmen community Site
I`m happy to introduce ASK Unixmen community Site, a question / Answer site for Linux users.
Here are some highlight about the new Q/A site : http://ask.unixmen.com
What kinds of questions can I ask here?
Most importantly – questions should be relevant to this Linux and Open source in General. Before you ask – please make sure to search for a similar question. You can search questions by their title or tags.
What kinds of questions should be avoided?
Please avoid asking questions that are not relevant to this community (Example asking help for Windows issues)
What should I avoid in my answers?
Ask Unixmen: Is a question and answer site – it is not a discussion group. Please avoid holding debates in your answers as they tend to dilute the essence of questions and answers. For the brief discussions please use commenting facility.
Who moderates this community?
The short answer is: you. This website is moderated by the users. Karma system allows users to earn rights to perform a variety of moderation tasks
How does karma system work?
When a question or answer is upvoted, the user who posted them will gain some points, which are called “karma points”. These points serve as a rough measure of the community trust to him/her. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to the users based on those points.
For example, if you ask an interesting question or give a helpful answer, your input will be upvoted. On the other hand if the answer is misleading – it will be downvoted. Each vote in favor will generate 10 points, each vote against will subtract 1 points. There is a limit of 200 points that can be accumulated for a question or answer per day. The table below explains reputation point requirements for each type of moderation task.

How to change my picture (gravatar) and what is gravatar?
The picture that appears on the users profiles is called gravatar (which means globally recognized avatar).
Here is how it works: a cryptographic key (unbreakable code) is calculated from your email address. You upload your picture (or your favorite alter ego image) the website gravatar.com from where we later retreive your image using the key.
This way all the websites you trust can show your image next to your posts and your email address remains private.
Please personalize your account with an image – just register at gravatar.com (just please be sure to use the same email address that you used to register with us). Default image that looks like a kitchen tile is generated automatically.
To register, do I need to create new password?
No, you don’t have to. You can login through any service that supports OpenID, e.g. Google, Yahoo, AOL, etc.” “Login now!” »
Why other people can edit my questions/answers?
Goal of this site is… So questions and answers can be edited like wiki pages by experienced users of this site and this improves the overall quality of the knowledge base content. If this approach is not for you, we respect your choice.
Still have questions?
Please ask your question, help make our community better!
