Why do I downvote questions?

In the last time questions of the just do it for me kind came up more and more on this site and I believe that they have only few or no benefit for this site. I decided to deals with it by downvoting questions that only post the desired result without showing any efforts by the OP.

Text building blocks

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at [our starter guide](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436) to familiarize yourself further with our format.
  • Please do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than “user1234”.
  • [Welcome to TeX.SX!](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436) Please add a [minimal working example (MWE)](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with\documentclass{...}and ending with\end{document}.
  • [Welcome to TeX.SX](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/1436). Questions about how to draw specific graphics that just post an image of the desired result are really not reasonable questions to ask on the site. Please post a minimal compilable document showing that you've tried to produce the image and then people will be happy to help you with any specific problems you may have. See [minimal working example (MWE)](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228) for what needs to go into such a document.
  • Maybe worth a look: [Why should the minimal class be avoided?](http://tex.stackexchange.com/q/42114/4918).

comment Something like \enumerate, but with custom numbers at each \item
@geo909: This is because the labels, which is “Question” in your case, have a fixed width. If you have such list {description} seems to be more appropriate. You can also increase the label width e.g. by using the enumitem package.

comment How to add background only to title frame and an other only to the last frame?
@LuísdeSousa: Sorry I can’t reproduce it … neither with TeX Live 2013 nor with ’14 on OS X. Maybe you can try to update your system …

comment TikZ: define center of a picture
Please note that \center should be \centering? \center is just the beginning of the center environment which is not appropriate in this case, see When should we use \begin{center} instead of \centering?.

comment Write environment body verbatim to a file
Hm … Seems like the gobble function is hard wired with the user level macros and can’t be used with \lst@BeginWriteFile
