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 our forum before, please use the forum's search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It's easy to search – just click the "Search" button at the top right of the page.
2. Be DESCRIPTIVE and Don't use stupid topic names
Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don't use attention getting subjects. They don't get attention and only annoy people).
Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor
Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not replying to people with demeaning comments such as "if you aren't going to help don't waste my time replying".
