POST IN THE APPROPRIATE FORUM
Please read each forum description before posting to ensure you are posting in the correct forum. Off topic posts will be moved to the correct forum. Please help us keep our workload down, by not expecting the moderators to keep moving your threads or posts for you. Thank You.
NO DUPLICATE OR REPEAT POSTS
If no one answers your question or responds to your post, please "bump" it rather than posting it again. Posting the same question over and over or in every forum will just annoy people and will not get answers.
USE APPROPRIATE TITLES
Titles like “Help Me”, or “I'm Stuck” serve little value in any forum. Try to be short and concise, but descriptive when submitting your thread starting post. Try to make the titles of the threads you start as descriptive and appropriate to the content as possible. Once again, Moderators do not have time to keep changing the titles of your threads. Please assist us by using appropriate titles to start off a new thread.
