    Perhaps there's a quick link to an FAQ, but could someone explain the 'best practices' for questions? I like the edits to my question made by a super-moderator and will try to follow them going forward, but I'm sure there are others. Dec 17, 2019 at 14:31

    There are general instructions on how to ask in the "Ask Question" page: ethereum.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask. If you have a question about the policies you can ask in the Ethereum's meta page ethereum.meta.stackexchange.com.
