SourceCred in 5 minutes covers how to play SourceCred from a generic perspective, and this guide covers how to play specifically on this Discourse forum.
General Discourse Stuff
Discourse is an amazing forum software that lets you do all sorts of things. While it’s powerful, it can also be confusing. We’ll do our best to cover some the features that SourceCred uses the most, but if you’re new to Discourse we recommend the Discourse New User Guide.

SourceCred Best Practices
Whenever possible give credit where credit is due. If you’re not sure how/why to do that, check out Chris Olah’s Collaboration & Credit Principles post.
Whenever possible reference/link the Artifact.
Using the search feature while composing posts is the best way to find content to link to without leaving the edit window for a post.
If you happen to copy the link from a topic on the Discourse homepage or category pages you’ll copy the link to the first unread post. Double check that your link goes to the top level comment in a thread unless you meant to link to a specific comment.
