Omega's Do's & Don'ts of Posting Questions

Discussion in 'Strategy' started by RexLSA, Jan 29, 2012.

  1. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The purpose of this guide is to explain to the everyday KaW'er how to effectively post a question on the forums and be able to get a reasonable answer and avoid trolling, spam, being farmed, etc.

    *** Please note, that this is will reduce your chances of being flamed, I cannot guarentee anything, as some people will just do it for their own pleassure, regardless of whether or not your post was total fail***

    That being said, Lets get started.

    Do
    - Check your grammar.
    - Clearly state the information you are looking for (when applicable)
    - Be polite and respectful (Remember you're asking for help)
    - Check the forums to see if they already have the answer you're looking for.
    - Put some actual thought into your post. It's well known that a well thought-out/worded question gets more serious responces.
    - (EDIT) Once you have written the thread, check back every so often until you get a satisfactory answer.
    - (EDIT) Post your questions in correct section of the forums (Questions/Feedback or OFF TOPIC if not KaW Related)

    Do NOT
    - Put numb3rs 1n y0ur w0rd5 1t mak35 y0u 100k 11k3 an 1d10t.
    - Don't get upset / offended if you get trolled (They FEED off of this, they want you to be butthurt)
    - DO NOT TYPE IN ALL CAPS AND EXPECT PEOPLE TO TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY
    - Trash talk, I suggest my method, do all the trash talking in their new feeds.

    This is all I can think of at the moment, if you have any suggestions to add to the guide, please post them, and I'll add them in (if I feel they're worthy) and give credit where credit is due.

    Special thanks to: -MissBehave- , MH-GENOCide

  16. Re: Omega's Do's

    Another thing i would add to Do's :

    Once you have written the thread, check back every so often until you get a satisfactory answer. Ive often had to wall OP's with question threads to tell them to check their threads again. Then having to explain on walls when they cant find their thread :)
