AnswerHub


AnswerHub, another topic briefly covered in Chapter 1, Getting Started with Unreal 4, is a place where you can post questions regarding a particular topic you are having issues with, or if you require assistance with something. Clicking on the AnswerHub hyperlink located on the bottom-left corner of the Launch Client will take you to the AnswerHub page.

On the front page, you can see a list of questions that other members have posted. Now, it is quite likely that the problem that you are facing is not unique. So, before posting a question, it is advisable that you first search AnswerHub for the same or similar questions. Only when you cannot find a suitable solution or any solution, should you post on it.

To post a question, click on the Post A Question button at the top-right corner of the page, which will bring you to the Ask a question page.

You put the question at the top. Make sure that it is clear, concise, and written in such a way that a reader is able to get an idea after reading it. Below it, you can choose which section the problem is related to. For instance, if you are having difficulties in packaging your game, then in the section, you should choose Packaging & Deployment, and so on.

Below this is where you write the details of your issue. This is where you elaborate the question you posted. Again, try to remain brief, concise, and clear in your details. If possible, post screenshots, log files, and so on, so that it is easier for people to understand your problem.

Finally, you need to set Tags to your question. Tags make it easier for users to search for questions. When you search for a question, the search engine compares what you have written with the tags, so also make sure you properly tag your question.

It is always nice to help others. With that said, if you feel that you can help someone who has a problem, you should help him/her out by answering questions posted by other members. It is a great way to engage with the community, and you might also learn something new in the process. It is also a great way to build your karma points. If you are quite active on AnswerHub, and your answers are useful, you will get upvoted, and in turn, increase your karma points (something like Reddit).
