Some more general suggestions:

  • Subject lines: Be creative, be unique, it does not matter. Just be descriptive. "HELP ME!!!!!!!" does not give people much to work with.
  • Remember, all-caps is yelling. We all understand your urgency to solve your problem, but you do not have to shout like it is on fire. If it is on fire, we won't be able to help you as much as your local fire department. They probably should be your first call, posting here can be your second action after the phone call. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
  • Details details details. We are more than willing to help you, but please be detailed in the description of your problem. It does not have to be perfect, but we absolutely cannot work with It broke or Its making a funny noise. Why? We really need as much info as possible to help you out.

Remember, if we move your post, it really is just for the purpose of keeping this place running smoothly. Nobody is "in trouble", nor did they do something "wrong". It is just part of what we get paid the big bucks to do.
