    Don't use ALL CAPS or lots of punctuation!!!!! - This is annoying and makes posts harder to read. Also, since most posts are questions, it's redundant to say "Need Help!" or similar in the subject.


    After someone answers your question, it's nice to recognize their contribution with "correct" or "helpful" points. These points affect user rankings, which can be seen as a very rough guide to people who post a lot of answers to questions. Note this is not a perfect guide - some people with low rankings are very useful / knowledgeable and may contribute in ways that don't generate points, or just don't post as often.



    Don't use terminologies or abbreviations you're not completely sure of; even then, be aware that context matters. For example, SD might mean "Secure Digital" card to you, but to someone else it might mean SnapDrive software. "VRAM" might make sense to you as "Virtual RAM", but most people would think "Video RAM". Being explicit helps people understand what you're talking about, which is necessary for them to help you.
