Should I first ask for help simplifying the code? Put something in the comments? Create a link? Is there something else I should do to try and fit this in? Surely, I am not the first person to have this problem. I had a feeling it's better just to ask here on meta before trying anything, Just in case.

    The best way is to try to isolate the part of your code that is causing the problem. Surely not all of it is problematic. Second best is to put the code on Pastebin and link to it here. Commented Dec 30, 2020 at 16:28

    And be aware that if your code is overwhelmingly large, the chances of getting an answer shrink drastically. This is the other reason you should try hard to reduce your code to the problematic part.
