How to track your activity on DC

Hey Developers,

If you wish to know how you're doing in the Community and see your stats, you don't need to scroll through all your posts in your profile (though it is also possible). You can use the Online Analytics Dashboard. In it you can see your own detailed statistics for the current week, month, and all time, including:

  • number of views, likes, comments, followers
  • timeline graphics of views, likes, actions with your posts, comments
  • a table containing info about views, comments, and likes for your every post

      Hey Developers,

      You may have already seen the article about creating a post on the Developer Community where you can find general info about creating posts. Still, we've decided that adding a post that focuses solely on the questions can be beneficial. So let's concentrate on how to pose questions.

      First of all, let's talk about giving a post a good title. Choosing a good title for a question is essential to attract the right audience and increase the likelihood of getting helpful answers. Here are some tips to help you craft an effective title:

      Hi, Community Members!

      The goal why we are posting questions on Developer Community is to get the answer.

      Here is very simple guidelines document on how to ask questions which would get answers.

      When you post a question you need to feel 3 fields: title, body, and group. And tags.

      1. The Title

      A good title should contain the brief description of your problem - it should not be longer than 80-90 symbols.

      But brief doesn't mean one word. These are not very good titles for questions: Cache, Ensemble, Peace, World.
