8 General Posting Guidelines

Here are some general guidelines.

8.1 Please use SEARCH first

There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on ourforum before. Please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some useful threads on the subject. It is easy to search –click the “Search” button at the top right of the page.

8.2 Use DESCRIPTIVE topic names and subject lines

Please post a descriptive topic name.

Give a summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT LINE. “Help me”, “Hello”, “Very urgent”, “I have a question” are not descriptive. Generally, ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.

8.3 Remember, when people help you, they are doing you a favour

Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people.
