Guidelines on complicated discussions

    Question

  • I'm hoping to start a discussion on a group of topics that are inter-related to my project and I was wondering what kind of rules/guidelines there were regarding this.

    In my case, the project includes classes derived from CWnd, when CWnd gets a CDC, having these CWnds draw themselves using Direct2D, and Scrolling support.

    Obviously, that is a boatload of topics. I know that when I ask a question, I have to keep it narrow and specific. Do similar rules apply for discussions - meaning I run the risk of violating these rules when incorporating these topics in a discussion. If so how can I best mitigate this?

  • That's how it works. Each question or point deserves a separate thread but I would not necessarily reference another thread since most would loose interest and not bother to browse to and read it.

  • Yes, you're correct in that you should keep it more on the specific side otherwise a moderator will throw it to OffTopic forum. Here are a few that may work for you.

  • Okay, would it be acceptable to have one discussion "[Discussion on topic]" introduce one question and then, once I get some replies, start a new discussion "[Discussion on topic]: part 2" that references the first discussion and ask a second question that builds off of the responses to the first?
