The answer is in the error message: add more details.

  • What are you trying to achieve
  • what are you expecting to get out
  • What did you get out (include error messages)
  • What else have you tried?
  • What do you think is causing it?
  • Why do you need to make a new question for it? Why is your problem different to other, similar questions on here?

When you asking questions, using some more words to describe your problem will always help. If there are really nothing more to say, just copy some random paragraph from internet, but make sure you mark them as dummy text so that people won't pay attention on them.

«...just copy some random paragraph from internet»?! That might be the stupidest idea I'm going to hear all day. –  Josh Caswell Jun 18 '13 at 18:29

What if you just don't format your code as a code block? –  Sam I am Jun 18 '13 at 18:50

@SamIam also a path to closure and heavy downvoting –  Jan Dvorak Jun 18 '13 at 18:53
