    Prepare yourself before asking questions
    Preparation

    Asking questions is easy. Asking good questions is a bit harder. Be prepared! Collect and provide all the info you can. By doing that other users don't have to ask for more information and you can have a good answer faster.

    There are many different PocketMine and PHP versions, things can be added or removed. Don't forget about all the different Operating systems and Plugin versions too!

    Example:

    Crashdumps
    Did you server crash and gave a crashdump? Put it on http://pastebin.com and provide a link in your post. If you have many plugins help everyone by trying to find the cause. Remove all plugins and add them back one by one until you are able to reproduce the crash. Can you reproduce the crash? Provide the steps to do it, it will make it easier for the developer to find the problem.

    Did the server crash because a plugin? Report it to the plugin author!

    Plugin questions
    Do you have a question or problem with a plugin? Create a new post in the plugin thread.

    Do's and Don'ts
    Do

    - search before asking
    - make descriptive titles
    - provide as much info as you can
    - plugin related questions in the plugin thread
    - use https://pastebin.com for crash logs, code or any large blobs of text
    - Read the docs http://pmmp.rtfd.io

    Don't
    - say "it doesn't work", explain yourself!
    - make a long title for your topic
    - ask your question in the title
    - paste crashdumps into a thread - use our Crash Archive for submitting crash reports and paste a link to the report
    - code or any large blobs of text in your post (use pastebin)
    - abuse text formatting
    - request support for spoons/non-official variants of PocketMine-MP - we will not provide support for them here.

    Fixed some formatting and added a "don't" for spoons.

    I've given pasting crashdumps its own "don't" and added a note to use the crash archive.
