When posting questions about numpy, please take the following into consideration:
Topics/use cases that involve the use of other packages as well should include all other relevant tags as well to make questions easier to find.
Explicit programming related questions are more suitable for Stack Overflow and should not be posted on Stack Exchange Data Science.
Questions should include sufficient details and clarity to be able to provide support for the problem at hand. This includes linking/showing underlying data being used, providing code, highlighting relevant outputs/desired outcomes, etc.
