I'm sure I'm missing something simple here, but I can't figure out how to submit a question to the Ask HN section of the Hacker News website. How do I do this?
- Click the submit link at the top of the page.
- Log in, if necessary.
- Fill out the form.
Note to start an "Ask HN:" discussion, you must fill out the form in a special way:
- Start title with "Ask HN:"
- Enter your question as the rest of the title field.
- Leave the URL field blank.
- Optionally put a more detailed explanation of your question in the text field. This will appear at the top if someone views your submission.
There's a Submit link in the header - or just head over to this link directly --> http://news.ycombinator.com/submit with "Ask HN:" prefixed to the title
It's worth pointing out that Hacker News doesn't have any "sections" per se. It's just something that people put at the front of the subject.
