More info when posting in the forum.


I don't want to tread on the admins toes, but.......

Could I make a request that all ppl update their profile on this forum to make sure that at least the Distribution is correct to what you are running.

When posting a request it is always handy for ppl to know what you are running and what version. This makes solving the problem a bit easiers.


Thank you for your time in this very important matter.

I completely agree. I can get quite a pain asking people to actually let us know what the problem is. It would be like walking into a garage and saying 'My car doesn't work' - without having your car there and not telling the mechanic anything about your car!

So please, just a little more consideration given to the information you're giving when you post. Thanks.

Hello!

Scroll down to the bottom of the forum and look on your left hand side. There should be a blue box that says "New Thread".
