    We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking
    and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question.

    Here are some general guidelines.

    Use our Search Engine First

    + There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on this
    forum before (or even hundreds of times before for some issues).

    + 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.



    Don’t use stupid topic names and be Descriptive


    + 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. They repel attention and annoy people.


    Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :


    Help me
    Hello
    Very urgent
    I have a question
    Newbie needs help
    is driving me nuts
    etc..


    Generally anything similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.


    Here is a good example of a way to post a question

    “how to Add this Sytem on my forum ?” or looking for a study buddy for F8 and F9


    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 snapping at people with garbage such as
    “if you aren’t going to help don’t waste my time replying”.



    Forum Rules

    + No Spam, Advertising, Self-promote in other section in the forums.

    These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content.
    Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc.
    Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.

    Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted.

    + Do not post copyright-infringing material

    + Do not post “offensive” posts, links or images

    Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited.
    Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums.
    This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting.

    + Do not cross post questions

    Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums.
    There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.

    + Do not PM users asking for help

    Do not send private messages to any users asking for help.
    If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.

    + Remain respectful of other members at all times
