# What makes a good MWE?

Actually, when I was thinking about my next question and about to include one *.tex and one *.bib file in my MWE, I was looking for a MWE template here, but could not find one.

But everyone here should know how to construct a Minimal working example, especially newbies like me.

Thus, despite knowing that there is not ONE good MWE for asking questions, I wonder what would be the most minimal, yet working skeleton for:

• General Questions
• Questions with bibtex/biblatex
• Typo related questions
• Questions with international reach (i.e. encoding, language-specifics)

This question is supposed to help all newbies, so help me making it good!
