Posting Courtesy

Here are a few tips to help you post appropriately:
  • Make your thread title descriptive. Don't just post "help!"
  • Post your thread in the right forum. Read the descriptions under the forum names to help you figure out the right one
  • Search first. There is over 8 years of great content here. Putting a little effort into trying to help yourself first makes it more likely others will help you when you get stuck.
  • Don't crosspost or double post your question in different forums. Post it in the place where it makes the most sense.
  • Don't bump your threads, someone will respond if they know the answer to your question
  • Say thank you to people when you get helped
  • Just like you got help, stick around and try to help others
