    Default The fear of getting made fun of for not knowing.

    An IRL friend of mine is trying to learn programming. I invited him to a few pounds I frequent, and he was scared to ask questions for the fear of being mocked for not knowing. This kind of hit home, since I realize that I've definitely been one to point fun at people for not knowing X or Y before.

    That being said, I want to make some sort of resource where people can ask whatever they want, without the fear of being mocked, while keeping it a social environment.

    Ideas?

    i'm guessing anonymity is key. for me the main reason why i didn't ask questions was due to the fact that people would tag a lable to my face that said "moron"

    Think I'm going to make a board where I encourage users to use new/unique handles, as well as make it oriented around every one helping everyone, like it used to be.
    Rather than fearing mockery.

    Asking question is a hard thing to do especially when you are new to a subject, one important thing is that the questions should be answered by somewhat professionals.

    I used to ask questions in IRC but stopped when I realized how little I knew and how dumb I looked. But that just drove me to put more time into projects.

    I think the only problem with this idea is that some people take places to ask questions and turn them into places to be spoon-fed everything. Stack Overflow's good for asking questions though.

    Not a bad idea. Maybe a reddit-like site? I think I'd stick to StackOverflow, though.

    I think it's really easy to determine the fine line between helping and spoon-feeding, and I think it'd be something that will either be enforced, or encouraged if this were to happen.

    I remember having that fear in math class. So I would just not ask anything...

    Since it's going to start small you could always filter words too.
