If an answer has been posted in the comment sections but the person didn't post it as an answer, you can go ahead and post it as an answer and mark it as answered afterwards. Common "courtesy" is to wait a little bit (I'd say at least one day, but that is subjective) before doing so because some people prefer taking their time before posting a ...

It is ok to post an answer that uses a product you made or are affiliated with, when it does answer the question, and only if you disclose your affiliation.

Blender is a visual tool and explaining errors/undefined behaviour might be tricky especially for new users, so sharing a file is often the best means to communicate what the problem could be. Us experienced users can usually immediate spot what is off rather than reading two paragraphs of text and then assuming what the problem might be so I don't think ...

Only add images to posts when simple text explaining where a menu or a panel is inadequate. Considerations: This is not a tutorial site, users who don't understand terms like The header or The 3D view-port should be pointed to beginner documentation on the interface. Trying to help users without this means including too much background info. There are many ...
