Earlier today I asked a question (Mixed Effects Models) and received a response. I want to post follow-up question that asks for R code to achieve the solution provided by the response, but is this type of solicitation appropriate for this site, or better left to stackoverflow?
IMHO, asking for full fledged R code for your context is inappropriate. The ideal statistical computing question would be something along the following lines:
- Explain model context / your goals etc
- Give some minimal example of R code that you are having trouble with
- Ask your question about the code (e.g., bugs, slow code etc that you have)
Your question on Mixed effects models is fine. As for a follow-up question it would be OK to ask what R packages are available to fit your model. More than likely, someone would post some code that you could use.
When a questionnaire asks for a fully worked solution the OP can come across a bit lazy.
