Hi community managers,
A lot of questions don't provide the data required to replicate issues raised.
You've got a checklist at the botton of the New Question screen.
Could youplease add @Reeza's article to above checklist so people get a direct link of how to easily provide data?
How to create a data step version of your data AKA generate sample data for forums
Eventually: Also post a link somewhere fix on every single forum page of how to ask a question and what to provide. It would make it so much easier to explain to people what they have to provide if we could simple refer to a link.

Hi @Patrick - thanks for the feedback.
We are always working towards better guidance, especially for new community members, to help them to ask a good question. Asking a good question with a clear goal, sample data and code -- this leads to the quickest, best answer.
We do have plans to make such guidance more prominent -- especially for new users. However, gentle coaching from experience community members is also very effective...so we appreciate when our community experts nudge new users to the best action.
