It is more possible that you get a satisfying answer if you ask in a better way. Specifically:
- Make your question as easily readable and understandable as you can. Why would someone take the time to answer, if you don't take the time to help his task?
- Remember that the other person is not in your mind. It is necessary to be accurate in your sayings.
- Include as much information as you can at your post, so that people know what sort of answer you expect.
- Make some research at the web first, to verify that what you want is not readily available.
- Try to be polite
Remember: Posting sensibly doesn't only help to avoid havoc at the forums, but also maximizes the chances for an equally sensible reply!
