I recently migrated a Rails app I had on Heroku to my domain Hosted on Dream Host and it caused issues with my Google Apps mail. I asked Dream Host and their solution didn't seem to work, and when I asked it here I got down-voted, so I was wondering where I could/should ask that. I want to make sure I use this site properly.

You're in the right place. I assume the downvoter saw your disclaimer on the first line and assumed you were a noob without reading the rest of the post. You should try to cut questions down to just the actual question. Putting a warning sign up front that you might be clueless is a good way to attract people who downvote for no good reason. =]

  • I think Chris's comment on that question is correct: that's a long, complicated question, with a rambling explanation of what DNS records you created and then a list of other records in a non-standard format... Jan 26, 2012 at 17:56

It might have been downvoted because it's a long rambling post that takes far too long to get to the point. While I didn't downvote this particular one that is one of the things I do downvote for.
