This question already has an answer here:
- “What have you tried” epidemic 12 answers
I've noticed one of two things will happen:
- People will post quick and dirty code to get the easy rep
- There will be several comments between the OP and commenters about elaborating on the details of the question, what he's tried, etc.
I see this comment:
How about you go and attempt this yourself instead of being lazy and just asking someone else to do it? StackOverflow expects you to show any attempts made, which is clearly a more inflammatory way of saying 'What have you tried'?
Can anyone elaborate on this?
