different conversations.
If you need help or have an error before asking in chat first search
civicrm stack exchange. It's entirely possible someone else has had
the same problem. If you don't find your problem on civicrm stack
exchange when you solve it perhaps consider posting your question and
the solution to help others.
If you are asking for help in civicrm chat. **Don't post in multiple
channels the same question. This is bad manners, will annoy people and
reduce the likelihood people will volunteer their time to help you.**

- installation-support
- dev-newcomers
- extensions
- user-support

When asking for help try and make it as easy as possible for people to
help you. Include what you are doing to cause the error. (Copy the
command if it's a command on the command line. You can always copy the
error - if it's large to a gist. ->
