How's this for a homework policy?
Lisa and I have come up with an addition to the guidelines specifically regarding homework questions (Lisa did most of the work). It’s a change in the mod policy (see the emphasis).
Will you help me with my homework?
We will, provided you’re not asking us for the answer! Our members will be happy to help you think through a problem, assist you with a sticky spot, explain where you’ve gone wrong, or point you in the right direction for further research. We won’t actually do your homework for you, though, so please don’t ask us to. We’re here to help you learn, not to help you cheat! In fact, any posts that give you the answer will be removed. When asking for homework help, give as much detail as possible and tell us what you’ve already tried. We’ll have you back on track in no time!
