Making Posts/Threads/Topics on these forums:
... With that said, it is recommended that before you consider making a post in ANY forum on this site that you first review the Pinned/Sticky Topics at the top of the forum you are interested in. Chances are, anything you might want to ask, has already been asked and answered there. If not, do a search. No one likes to answer the same question a 1000 times. If you make a post that has been done many many time before, staff might close it, or merge it with others.
So.. before making a post, check existing topics.. both pinned, and by search. Still think you should/can make a post?
