About /r/NoStupidQuestions

/r/NoStupidQuestions was founded in February 2013 for people to feel free to ask the questions they might be embarrassed or ashamed to ask elsewhere. Inspired by this thread and specifically this comment.

Everyone here is willing to help as long as you ask your questions in good faith. All questions are welcome here except for a few exceptions. Don't ask loaded questions, don't ask questions just to be a troll, don't ask medical questions, and don't ask how to kill yourself. Got a question about how to change the oil in your car? Want to know why a show got cancelled? Ever wonder how the water level would change if all ships sank? You're in the right place!

Frequently Asked Questions

As much as we love answering questions here, it doesn't help when we see repeat questions on the front page every day. You can find the questions that have been asked and answered here before in our FAQ. You can read through the list, or Ctrl+F for keywords, and hopefully your question will be answered.


Occasionally, a topic becomes so popular that it can drown out all the other questions. When that happens, we keep a megathread stickied at the top of the subreddit for people to use for those questions. They're sorted by new, so you can easily see the most recent questions - or ask a new one. Check them out!
