I have a question about my Cross Validated post: How to set up my workflow and data for my first network model
I would appreciate help. I am trying to ask a question, but I don't understand what I need to do differently. The feedback is make it more focused. Ok... how? I've read the https://stats.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask 3 times now.
This is my thinking:
- Search: well, I've been online all week trying to learn what I need to do, so I think I've gotten this part out of the way.
- Be on topic: For me, the question asks about setting up an initial dataframe for my network. I think of a set-up as the pseudo-code phase. Plan, make an outline, and try to implement. My post explains my plan and outline. I'm asking if this the correct way to think about it.
- Be specific: My question is, did I do this right? However, looking back at it, did I ask too many questions pertaining to the one topic I'm talking about? I'm asking about the whole setup, hence the one topic. So should I break each question into a different post?
- Make it relevant to others: I'm assuming if you aren't interested in the topic, then you don't need to answer.
- Keep an open mind: That I've definitely got. I am one those people that learn from making mistakes, and I make a lot of them. But I can't fix them unless I understand how to fix them.
So that is what this question is about. Please help me understand what I can do better so that I can ask if my setup to build my network is correct.
You guys have been doing this stuff for a very long time and understand all the aspects to it. I am new to the site, new to programming, new to building a network. It means I don't know what I'm talking about enough to maybe put it into a precise question. I don't know what I have to ask to get the answer I'm looking for. Does that make sense?
