    Default Posting Advice


    Make sure your posts are readable


    Do not post a long text in one BIG "chunk", because such posts are hard to read.
    Use linefeed (CR/LF) = press ENTER and start a new sentence on a new line.
    Try to put the text in groups with not more than 10 lines in each group,
    and place an empty line between each group.
    The Posting Advice (this post) and the Forum-Rules are a good example...
    This is (of course) important especially when you are requesting help...
    Because if other members canīt read your post then donīt expect any...
    But posting BIG "chunks" of text is also rude when you are replying to someone.


    If you have posted in the wrong forumsection by mistake


    Create a new post / thread in the right section, and then delete the first one:

    open a new tab to the forum and go to the right section
    go to the tab with your misplaced post (wrong section)

    select "Edit"
    copy your post (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C)
    go to the new tab (right section)
    paste (Ctrl-V) the copied text in the right thread / start a new thread
    go back to your misplaced post (copy the title if it was a new thread), then delete it
    paste the title in the new post (if it was a new thread...)
    click "Submit"

    This is the easiest and fastest way !
    Of course you can also contact the Admins / Moderators via PM, but then it can take some time to move your post....


    Commonly known and frequently used abbreviations

    MS = MicroSoft
    W = Windows, fx. W7
    WS = Windows Server, fx. WS2008-R2
    O/S = Operating System
    HDD = Hard Disk Drive
    FDD = Floppy Disk Drive
    FW = FireWall

    FF = FireFox
    PM = Pale Moon (can also mean Private Message, but the context usually tells you the meaning....)
    IE = Internet Explorer

    MSE = Microsoft Security Essentials
    EAM = Emsisoft AntiMalware
    MBAM = MalwareBytes
    AntiMalware


    When posting about software (programs / drivers etc.)

    Terms like "last version", "this driver?", or "the latest Driver" doesnīt help.
    When referring to software always post both the filename and a link to the software.
    This is (of course) important especially when you are requesting help...


    When posting a problem or question
    about hardware

    Please include the specifications of your computer:


    Processor Speed and Type
    Amount of RAM
    Graphics Card
    Sound Card*
    Motherboard*
    External Peripherals / Devices*
    Operating System

    *depending on the question or problem, hard drive size is optional.

    For example:
    Quote:
    2.0GHz AMD Athlon X2 dual-core processor QL-64
    3GB DDR2 RAM / 250GB HDD
    ATI HD 3200 discrete graphics card
    Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
