General Guidelines for Posting

Post by admin »

We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question. Here are some general guidelines.

  1. Please use SEARCH first!
    There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It’s easy to search – just click the “Search” button at the top right of the page. You may use the advanced search option also.

  2. Be DESCRIPTIVE and Don’t use “blind” topic names
    PLEASE post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects, they don’t get attention and only annoy people).

    Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST : Help me, Hello, Very urgent, I have a question Generally, ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable.

    Just post your problem. Here is a good example of a way to post a question “how to calculate the sensitivity of radiographic film?” or “where is the TWI office in Chennai?”

  3. Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor
    Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with garbage such as
    “if you aren’t going to help don’t waste my time replying”.
Always post your topic in the relevant forum, don't post in multiple forums, which leads to a ban of the user. Post your topic using the English language only others will be deleted.
