We often encounter questions (or comments/edits to questions) that are nothing more than PHP syntax errors that have not been properly debugged. (e.g. "I tried that, and my site went blank"). Here's one example from today:
The normal expectation is that people asking questions perform normal debugging, which implies some required minimum competency with WordPress, PHP, etc. Regular members operate under that implication, but new members aren't always aware of it, which can lead to frustration for everyone.
My question is: should we state that requirement explicitly somewhere in our FAQ?
