In summary, the conversation discussed who should provide help in the homework section. It was determined that it is acceptable to give 'peer help' by sharing ideas, as long as the original poster understands that it is not a definite solution.

I'm just wondering who should help in the homework section? Should I only comment those questions I feel comfortable enough to teach, or is it OK to give 'peer help', ie. when i don't know how to solve the problem, but I have an idea of what -could- be helpful?

If you're not sure, but would like to share an idea you've got, just make sure OP understands that it is an idea you've given him, rather than a hint.
For example, you might start like this: "I'm not sure this will work, but have you tried..."
