I'm a brand new user to Stack Exchange and I was wondering if I could get some guidance on how this site works and how to ask questions. I have been told by my friends I need to be clear and understandable when writing, otherwise I will get downvoted and put in "the slaughterhouse".
When I first signed up, there was a page that explained how to write good questions. However, it seemed quite vague and I'm not sure it was massively helpful. Can I have some guidance from you guys with more experience in the Stack Exchange community on the basics of how Stack Exchange works, as well as an explanation of how to write good questions on Stack Exchange?
It would be very much appreciated!
