Default Research the answers you are given

Very often you will not get the complete answer to your question. This is done for a reason, and that reason is not to make you feel dumb or to make us look smart. The reason is that we are trying to give you a nudge in the right direction or point you to a place where you can discover the answer for yourself. This is much more rewarding in the end because it makes you feel good that you found the answer, and it makes us feel good that you learned something.

Don't say, "It doesn't work"! This is incredibly annoying to the people trying to help you and it doesn't tell us what the problem is. Clearly state what you tried, hopefully it includes everything that was recommended and more. Doing this will make people more likely to help you and you will usually end up with a better answer quicker. Post updated code where appropriate.
