10. No spam.

1. Please do not embed pictures bigger than 800x600.
This makes it difficult to read threads and also makes it difficult for users on dial up. If you need to show bigger pictures please use links.

2. Use appropriate titles for threads.
This makes it easier for people to respond and also to search later. Please do not use lead in titles like “Guess what I installed today….”

3. Use search before posting a thread about a question.
You will sometimes be amazed at the information already available. If you did search and couldn’t find it, please state so in your post. Maybe you were using the wrong terminology and this will avoid people telling you to search.

4. Have a great time in this forum and if you have suggestions please post them in the suggestions section.
