We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question. Here are some general guidelines.
1. Please use SEARCH first!
There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It’s easy to search – just click the “Search” button at the top right of the page.
Choose the most-appropriate thread when making a post. If you have a comment that applies to one or more threads, pick one of them.
2. Be DESCRIPTIVE and don’t use stupid topic names
Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention-getting subjects. They don’t get attention and only annoy people).
Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :
Help me, Hello, Very urgent, I have a question
Generally, ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.
Here is a good example of a way to post a question
“How to calculate the sensitivity of net annual operating cash flows”
“where is the ACCA exam centre in Glasgow”
Double-posting: Choose the most-appropriate forum when starting a thread. If you have a choice, pick one forum and do not start the same thread more than once. We routinely remove duplicate threads.
