How to get the most out of the forumNow that the forum has been running for a while, I thought I should add some notes to help you get the maximum benefit from the forum. You should also read the original announcement for details.
- Only 20 messages are displayed at a time. You can see other message by using the "Newer Messages" and "Older Messages" links at the bottom right of the screen.
- You can collapse the threads so you see only the first message in each thread. Click on the "Collapse Threads" links at the top and bottom of the message list.
- When posting a message, take care with the topic. A topic which outlines the problem in a few words will get much better response than one that just says "help!".
Please read Greg Lehey’s tips on messages at http://www.lemis.com/questions.html. It is written with the FreeBSD questions mailing list in mind but the concepts and strategies translate very well to other venues.
If you have any other suggestions, please leave your comments.
