1. Don't expect someone to write your entire program.
2. Check to see if your question has been answered (use the search feature and read the FAQ!)
3. Use a descriptive title (not just "C" or "C++"; make it specific).
4. You don't need to write more than one H E L or P in help, and it definitely doesn't need to be capitalized.
5. Let dead posts lie; don't bump old messages without a reason or they will likely be deleted.
6. Post your code. If you don't have any, ask where to start; do not for the program to be written for you.
7. Don't type anything in all CAPS.
8. Don't ask for a personal email - the board will send an email when a post is replied to if you desire. Use that and check back when you get a reply; the board moves messages up. As well, it will actually send the text of the response to you.
9. Post once: don't keep pressing post. Duplicates will be deleted.
10. Do not cross post; almost everyone reads most of the important boards.
11. Be polite, especially if you want someone to help you. Just because you are giving help doesn't mean you have the right to be rude, however.
12. Disparaging remarks without provocation and unsolicited advertisements will be immediately removed. Don't waste your time, and don't waste my time. By the way, you can't make $6000 from $6 dollars.
