Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to the Kyma Q&A!
If you're unfamiliar with the Q&A format, please read the guidelines below before posting questions or answers. Click on any question to show or hide the answer.
  • What is the Kyma Q&A?
  • The whole purpose of this site is to get answers—not just any old answers, but credible answers that the whole community agrees are accurate and useful. It works because good answers are voted up and rise to the top, and because the person who asked the question can select one answer as Accepted.
  • How do I ask a question?
  • Questions should be related to an actual problem you're trying to solve. Include details about what you've tried and exactly what you'd like to achieve. You can always edit your own question later in response to requests for clarification or additional information.

    Before you ask, please search for similar questions. You can search for questions by clicking on a tag or by searching for text using the Search box at the top of the page. It may be that your question has already been answered or that you can click ask a related question in response to an existing answer.

    For this reason, the tags you select for your own questions are very important. The tags help organize the questions and answers and will help others find your contributions in the future.

    If someone does answer your question or provide a workable solution for you, please consider marking that answer as the one you Accept. (You can change your mind, if an even better answer is posted later). Accepting an answer also helps establish the credibility of the person who was kind enough to help (and it earns you a few points as well!)

    Once you consider your question to have been answered and no longer wish to receive any further answers, you can close the question by clicking the red Close flag.
  • What's the difference between an Answer and a Comment?
  • Before posting an answer, please read any answers that have already been posted. It may be that your contribution could be added as a Comment rather than as an alternative Answer.

    Use Comments to ask for more information, to clarify an existing question or answer, or to thank someone.

    When answering a question, please try to be clear and factual. When appropriate, you can attach a Kyma file to illustrate your point. You can edit your own answers at any time in order to respond to comments requesting additional information or clarification.
  • How does the point system work?
  • Your credibility score goes up when others vote up your questions and answers.

    For example, if you ask an interesting question or provide a useful answer, it's likely be be voted up. On the other hand if the question is poorly-worded or the answer is misleading, it's likely to be voted down. Each up vote on a question generates 10 points, whereas each down vote subtracts 10 points. Here's a list of how points can be earned:

    Selecting an answer for your question: + 30 points
    Per up vote on your question: + 10 points
