Forum Posting Guidelines

When posting a request for help, are there any guidelines I should follow?

    •Make the subject title indicative of the problem (or program) in question.
    •When posting a question regarding a specific product, include the Version number.
    •If you're experiencing problems with a program that generates an error message, then include the message or error code verbatim.
    •Start a new topic if the subject is over 2 weeks old. Please don't "wake up" older threads
    •Please await release release announcements & confirmation from the *official/author sites before posting a link

    We prefer no links to 3rd party sites that may be hosting the author's software, and this rule will be enforced
    Causes less confusion for members..and *buggy software that may have been pulled pre-final release isn't distributed.
    You might also miss author instructions. Like whether it's ok to install over current version, or if it's recommended to uninstall first.

    Indicate what, if any, changes were made that may have led up to the problem.
      •Any new or similar applications added?
      •Any new hardware added? If so, have you checked Device Manager (if using a Microsoft OS) for errors?



    Most importantly, when your problem is resolved, let everyone know!!! Many people put a lot of time and effort into helping you. Let them know what suggestions worked.

    If there is a more appropriate (dedicated) forum for your update/questions request thread - it may be moved there

General Posting Etiquette

Are there any other rules I should be aware of when posting in this forum?


    •Please await release release announcements & confirmation from the *official/author sites before posting a link

    •Start a new thread for unrelated topics to the original post.
    •Make sure to mention your Operating system & specs
    •Before posting, check at least the previous two - three pages of forum posts to make sure the question or the subject has not been covered recently. Also, consider trying a forum search (hint - use as short a search string as possible to get more hits).
    •Be sure and check the Software top voted topics for solutions, hints and tips.
    •News stories and articles should not be posted in the general forum. A News Section has been provided and is maintained by the Forum Hosts as a place for members to share interesting articles related to Software applications. Look for the Got News? link at the top of the main forum header.
    •Copyrighted applications are usually protected against redistribution by the owner (manufacturer) and therefore will not be allowed to be posted or offered on this board.

    Do not upload or post any files of .rar, .zip, .exe or other program extensions

    Other uploads (pdf, image, text, audio, etc.) are allowed, if they are not direct components to any software program and do not violate any forum or site rules.

    Asking for a software program to be posted here or emailed is discouraged. Please post a link to the download page, not a direct link. This will give users the opportunity to read any information available before they download an executable. In other words -- do not attach an executable or .zip of a program file to your post
    .

    Any posts containing illegal requests, referral links, spam, cracks, links to warez sites or similar is against the TOS and will be deleted. The poster runs the risk of further action by the Forum Host(s) and\or any Site Moderator.

    •Sale items do not belong on this board & go here

    •Be sure to review the DSLR Terms of use and Site FAQ.
