Now, this guide goes hand in hand with How not to look as stupid as you do by punkrockbigmouth. This guide is in the General Chat section. Check it.
I've put this post in this section as this is the area that most stupid questions seem to be asked. Please ensure you actually read this, as it will help you not only on these boards, but any other forums, websites you may visit. It may even happen to help you in real life. Maybe.
I present to you: How to ask questions - The Smart Way
The guide was originally written for the 'hacking scene' however I feel it holds relevance in any form of forum layout... hacking, programming, cheating etc. All the basics are there.
Some snippets from this guide which are important to note:
THIS QUOTE IS IMPORTANT FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE HERE WHO DONT SEEM TO UNDERSTAND (and yes capslock is cruise control for cool)
Anyway, that's enough quoting... It mostly came from the Introduction but there are a few good points within the introduction that I missed. So please, those of you who are going to post on these forums, please read this at least once. Seriously. It will only take 20 minutes of your time... and you will learn something when doing it.
(and all the other members who repeatedly answer the same questions)
