One of the best ways to get questions answered is to ask them to other users. This is what IRC (internet relay chat) is about. While participating you can ask and at the same time you are encouraged to answer other users' questions when you are able to. To join a KDE chat,

  • decide for a nickname for yourself and enter it
  • as channel, enter #kde
  • enter the text that is shown graphically (it is a captcha to keep away spammers)
  • click on Connect

You will get a chance to talk with all other participants on the channel #kde.

These instructions can also be viewed as a video here.

Here is a list of IRC Channels. To join another channel (about fedora in this example), enter

/join #fedora-kde

If you want more comfortability than a browser can give you, you can install IRC applications like Quassel or Konversation.
