Before you post : A search should be done to see if your questions have not been already posted. You have a section where you can find answers for general questions about board management
Topic titles : When you post your question or your problem, you must use a title related to your problem/question. Words such as "Urgent", "SOS", "Question", "Problem", "Hurry" are not tolerated. Capitals should also be avoided.
Description of you problem/question : When you ask a question, try to be clear and accurate about what you want to say. Don't hesitate to describe your problem. The more info you give, the better we can answer you.
Language on this forum : When you write in English, SMS (cell phone) style message, L3375P34K (leetspeak) and deliberate mistakes must be avoided. Non-English people, as well as English people, must be able to understand what you write, so put a minimum of care in your English, even if your English is not very good (eh, Godfather...lol? Exclamation )
Colors and capitals : When you write your message, please don't abuse capitals (it means that you shout) or colors.
Some colors are reserved for moderation and light colors are hard to read for visually impaired people.
Flood and off-topic : Flood must be avoided. One-word posts such like "lol", "rofl" or a single smiley must be avoided.
You must also avoid to post the same topic twice, it will not be faster for you to get a response.
As long as you topic is not in the second page of the support section, it is useless to up it. The minimun delay between two Ups is 24 hours, according to this board's default timezone.
If you make a mistake, please use the button at the top-right of your post, to avoid double-posting. Don't duplicate topics, this will bring a lot of work and spoil opinion on you.
Advertising for your forum : Spamming for your board is not tolerated, even by PM. If you post about a problem, give the address of your forum ONLY if we ask you OR if it's really necessary to understand a problem. Better : Put your forum address in your profile, so we will just have to click on the "Forum" button to examine your board.
