FAQ - How To Use This Forum
Here are some helpful hints on how to get the most from this forum.
1. Read the other posts in this FAQ Forum. These posts contain the answers to many of the frequently asked questions.
2. Read the threads in the other forums that interest you.
3. When you have completed reading the posts and threads that interest you, go to the main page and click on "Mark All Forums Read" (bottom right corner of the main page). The purpose of this will become clear in the next point.
4. Once you have marked all the posts read, you will be able to read all new posts the next time you log on. Click on "View New Posts" (near the top right of the main page). Right under "View New Posts" you will be shown the last time you visited the site. Once you click "View New Posts" you will be able to see all of the posts since your last visit. This is how the "veterans" always know how to answer the new questions - we don't navigate to the various forums, we just click on "View New Posts".
5. If you read a post and know the answer, or part of the answer, please help the other person out by replying to the post. That's how we all gain knowledge. Don't be afraid to be "wrong". This field is so new, that there are no experts, only people with some specific knowledge, and that person can be you.
6. If you are looking for a specific topic, use the search engine at the top of the page. Type in the "keyword" you are looking for and the search engine will show you all the threads that contain the keyword. Say you want to know about component video cables, type in "component". Other frequently asked topics contain the following keywords.
7. Please do not hesitate to ask questions at any time. There are no "silly" or "dumb" questions. The only silly question is the one you didn't ask.
8. If you find an interesting tidbit of information in the news or on the web, create a post and provide a link or the information.
9. Try to put the post in the relevant forum (but this is not critical).
10. You do not need to post multiple copies of a question. Once is fine. We all know how to find new posts now, so your question is bound to be answered.
11. It is helpful if you put in your location (city/state) in your profile. We are then in the right "place" to assist you whenever you ask something.
12. Please read the following "internet writing guide"
