Could we please be a bit nicer to the noobs?
I'm a student, and I asked a question about one of my assignments which I had been working on for about two days. The code I presented was code from several tries and experiments I had been researching and trying to understand. So I decided to get help from a community about what I was doing wrong in my code so that I could correct it and learn from it, not for people to do my homework for me.
However, when I posed my question, I got many negative comments saying things that were untrue and, to me, were quite scathing.
Is Stack Overflow for people with extensive to moderate programming skills? If so then I will know not to come back, as not to offend anyone.
