Every week the Nokia Developer discussion board moderators select a particularly interesting or informative question from the discussion boards, and promote it to the developer community as the “Featured Discussion Board Post”. The featured post is not necessarily the “best” question you’ll see on the discussion boards in a week, but it will be one that we think you’ll find useful.
Judging will be done by the moderators. We’ll be looking to award people who have come with genuine problems, and problems that are interesting to a broad range of developers. We’ll consider all discussion boards, but in particular those for Lumia and Nokia Asha.
We’ll also be looking for good discussion board citizen behaviour:
- Search to see if your question has already been answered before posting.
- Ask specific questions and explain what you’ve already tried. Remember we’re not here to create your whole app for you, but to help with stumbling blocks
- Ask development questions. The discussion boards are not the right place for end user questions or to make comments about Nokia’s platform choices! The discussion boards are for developers
- Reply to answers. Let everyone know whether their suggestions worked or what you did instead.
The Featured Articles will be recorded here.
Good luck, I think we can help you, and you may well get a prize too!
Frequently asked Questions
Why should I post my questions on Nokia Developer?
The Nokia Developer discussion boards are one of the best places you can go to ask questions about Nokia platforms. With most questions answered by our community members within only a few hours, this is true whether you’re asking about programming using Nokia APIs or services, on both Lumia and Series 40.
If the service is so great, why do you need this promotion?
We want to continue to build our community. That can only happen if developers like you try the service, find out what a great team we have working with you, and come back.
Discussion boards are one way that we use to communicate with developers and find out your real development problems and concerns. Through longer term engagement the discussion boards help us find the next generation of community leaders, and to recruit new moderators and Champions.
Why are you rewarding questions and not answers
This award is to help spread the news that there is another great place to ask questions if you need help with Windows Phone or Nokia Asha devices!
We already have a great moderation team and community answering questions, and a mechanism to reward them – “Poster of the Month” typically gets a high end Nokia Device – last month’s winner received a Lumia 820).
When does this start
Now! We typically publish our winner for the previous week each Tuesday.
