On the code-isn’t-working side of things there’s reprex, but I’m wondering if there’s a list of helpful information that people should include in their questions (e.g. computer system info) that might be included in a dynamic reminder for user’s first couple of questions.
Sorry if this is a bit unclear. Basically, I’m coming across questions that say X isn’t working, but that don’t include R version, package version, OS, etc., and I’m looking for ideas re. how to help new users to know what might help their potential answerers (short of full-blown diagnostics).
I tried to write up a few ways of finding some of these things visually, but obviously the existence of a blog post doesn’t make for a solution…
This piece has a good section on Computer Specifications too:
