How to get help in the discussion forums?

These are some tips for asking questions or starting new discussion topics and making sure you and other community members benefit as much as possible from the topic.

  • First, search to make sure someone else hasn’t already asked your question or started a topic on the same subject.
  • Add tags. Tags are keywords to help others to find your topic more easily.
  • Write a really good title. When people read the title they should be able to get enough information to understand if they want to click into the topic to read more or not. Choose a title that is short but descriptive. Moderators may edit your title if we think you have a really good topic that others should be able to find more easily.
  • Write a really good post - make sure you include all the details people need to respond and write clearly so people understand what you are saying.
