You MUST abide by all these rules before posting a topic asking for help/support. Failure to do so will result in a BIG FAT WARN.
- General Forum Rules Apply:
- No spamming
- No double-posting (the edit button exists for a REASON)
- No flaming
- If you are faced with a problem, try and consult previous help topics; chances are many people have the same problems as yours. (In the case of RMVX, try the FAQ topic. In the case of XP, try the XP FAQ topic).
- Give your topics suitable names. Any topics with names like 'PLZ HALP' or 'HELP PLZ' are going to be ignored for the most part. For example, if you're in need of help with switches, say "Problems with Switches". (Try not to include the word 'HELP' in capital letters at all, if you can help it. So you don't sound like a desperate failure.)
- When posting a topic give as much detail as possible. Below is a suitable template you could use for your post:
*Do tell what maker you are using
*Tell what you're trying to do
* Write how do you want it to happen
*Tell us the problem you are having.
*Tell us why you can't figure out
*Write down all of the possible solutions you have tried
*Say why the solutions you have tried didn't work
- It would be VERY USEFUL if you could pose a screenshot of the problem.
- Right when the problem occurs, press Alt + Prt Scrn (Print Screen)
- Press Ctrl + V in a graphics program (Paint is very convenient for this)
- Save the problem (saving as a .jpg reduces size of the image, but saving as a .png gives a clearer image. Save as a .png if the problem is visual)
- Upload the image on an image-hosting website such as Imageshack
- Post a link to the image and that's it!
- Wait at least 36 hours before bumping a topic(that's one and a half days)
- Topic necromancy is a CRIME (bumping a dead topic after 2 weeks-1 month, depending on the topic at hand). Especially when a question has already been answered.
- I know I might be asking too much but for the love of God PLEASE make your posts READABLE!
- Use proper spelling and grammar (or at least try to)
- Use proper punctuation (commas, periods, etc.)
