Guidelines for Responding

Comments like 'STFU' or 'RTFM' or "Google it up" are NOT acceptable -- This is not limited to or excluding childish type behavior, excessive use of odd forms of communication (ie. l33t5p34k and so forth), and excessive vuglar innuendo.

Be as descriptive as possible. It helps to have error outputs posted. Describe the problem as exactly as possible. Be sure to have your application versioning handy as well. It also helps to know if you compiled it from source, or from the repositories. These small bits of info can help us get you on the right track.

General Guidelines for Threads

Do not moderate each other -- Moderators are experienced professionals at handling these situations. Choice of wording and tone are crucial to effective moderation without leaving anyone hurt or discouraged. You can help with moderation by using the 'Report Post' button to alert moderators to the situation.

Try to keep on the same topic -- It gets very confusing to follow a thread with many simultaneous discussions. If you have a question that's not related to what the original author's, start a new thread. Link to the old one for reference if necessary.

Do not cross-post -- In other words, if you start a thread about a problem here, don't ask the same thing in another section to attempt to get a faster response. It doesn't work.

Quote when appropriate -- If you're responding to a specific post, please quote it before replying (use the Quote button). Mis-directed comments often spark trouble.
