Post and Content Rules
Do not post contents using CAPITAL letters or do not use huge fonts.
Do not post useless post titles like ‘Tank You”, “Help me”, “You may know”, etc. Instead write descriptive titles.
Do not use abbreviations unless those are universally accepted. Type complete words.
Do not use SMS abbreviations, they make posts unreadable and difficult to understand.
Do not use excessive emoticons or excessive punctuation marks.

Attachments, like the posts to which they are appended, should be relevant to the topic at hand. Don’t upload files that are widely available in the internet and can be found easily like datasheets or application notes, post a link instead. Drawings, diagrams or schematics should ideally be in GIF, JPEG or PNG format, not Bitmap. Also format your image attachments properly, use an image resolution that is easily readable, not too big or too small and use gif, png, or jpeg extension to reduce the size of the file. Avoid using bmp image format, it occupies a huge size compared to the formats described above and can’t be shown directly in a browser which is an additional inconvenience.
If your code is long prefer to use a zip file to attach it in the post instead of directly posting it.
Don’t upload your files to external servers and post the links, these files will be deleted after a while and the thread will become useless, attach your files in the post. Moderators will delete any posts that includes files uploaded to file sharing servers like Rapidshare, 4shared etc.

If you are not sure if something someone says is safe or legal, ask follow-up questions and do more research before attempting it. It is ultimately your responsibility to determine whether or not a solution is safe and legal. Use the information you get here at your own risk and to the best of your own judgement.
