General Posting Guidelines

Recommended Posts



We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads 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.


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. Search is fast and easy.


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).


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


"Help me, Hello, Very urgent, I have a question"


Generally ANYTHING similar to these is unacceptable. Just post your problem.

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


“How do I connect my GPS and my Weather Radar”


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 with statements such as


“If you aren’t going to help don’t waste my time replying”.


When you get help, it is much appreciated if you acknowledge this in a positive way. It creates good vibes and also tells other visitors that this issue actually was resolved. Here is a good example:


“Issue solved! Thanks John_D for providing such thorough instructions. And thanks all of you for spending time trying to help me!”
