    • Read the Stickies! Sticky threads at the top of the forum category answer a lot of questions.
    • Use proper spelling and grammar, with paragraphs as needed. Posts that are easier to read are easier to respond to.
    • If asking a question, provide as much in the way of details as you can to help our staff answer.
    • Keep criticism constructive! If you disagree with an opinion, explain why, but never attack the person.
