@sjr04Alt And that's when you make a 400 character answer. Because they don't know what it is, and they'll need an in-depth explanation on how the function works.
@Phlegethon5778 No. It shouldn't be. An answer is an answer. Let's say someone asks a question that says "How does FindFirstChild work?"
I'd respond with "FindFirstChild is a method of an object, (*and it) returns the first available child in an object that matches the string in the first argument. If the second argument is true, then it will recursively go through every single object in the ancestor object until it finds a name match."
*added because original string was bad grammar and stupid, it would actually be 280 characters
Now, let us see how long the answer is.
Two hundred seventy four characters.
(discord was the closest thing without making me search up a character counter)
What further information do I need to add?
A method is already described on the ROBLOX wiki, so do I need to go over what a method is? If they supposedly don't know what a method is, then I'll say ("More information on Methods here.") with a hyperlink to the wiki. Still doesn't reach 400 characters.
Do I need to go over what a string is? Of course not, that's also in the wiki. Heck, it's in almost every coding wiki on the planet!
Do I need to mention what recursively means? No! With a quick google search, I can understand what recursively means!
ScriptingHelpers isn't a spoonfeeding playground. That's why we moderate questions that aren't constructive. We strive off of people that have tried their hardest to solve their issue, not off of people who throw their scripts in and expect a full fledged answer on why their
Instance.new('Part').Parent = workspace script isn't working. If you expect me to give people the full answer and not let them work for it, then you're horribly mistaken.
