I'm interested mainly in Excel and VBA, reading a lot of questions in these topics.
I often find questions like "formula doesn't work", "what is the problem with this code" for which there are a couple of things the asker should check, and these are generally asked in comments quite quickly (have you double checked that your output is really wrong? Have you tracked your formula, if yes where it fails? Which line of code gives the error message and what it is? Have you checked the values of the relevant variables in the immediate window? Not the same, but similar comment: Please make some effort to solve your problem, we aren't a few code writing service...).
Sometimes understanding the question takes more effort than actually solving it.
The Stack Exchange site has many canned messages; e.g., the reasons for flags, and the options in the review queues. It would be useful to have a similar boilerplate response to which we could refer for questions that exhibit the most common problems, instead of typing the same suggestions and clarifying questions each time.
How does Stack Exchange (or Super User in particular) handle such "corporate knowledge" (standard responses to common issues)? How can I contribute to such an article? I don't feel myself enough experienced to do it alone.
