Tips for asking questions

  • Pick good subject lines. The odds of you quickly catching the attention of knowledgeable help go way up when you. Subjects like "Error 403 transferring waypoints on 60C under BlerfoMAP 3.34" are much more servicable than "Newbie question".
  • Punctuate the subject correctly. Interrogative sentences (questions) end in question marks.
  • Include brand and model info when you're asking about problems. If you're using a program that runs on more than one OS, include info on that, too.
  • If you're asking advice about maps, include what country/continent you're interested in.

This is a locked thread. If you see it unlocked, that means I'm editing it. Please don't follow up here, but do feel free to discuss it in the thread for that.
