:thumbsup: Write in short paragraphs with a blank line between each paragraph. Large blocks of solid text are much harder to read on a monitor than in a book or magazine so white space (blank lines between paragraphs) is much more important to readability than it is in text printed on paper. Your posting will not be deleted for not adhering to this guideline, but may get less responses.

:thumbsup: Please don't write in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. It's very hard to read and is considered the online equivalent of shouting at people. Your post will be deleted if it is all in CAPS.

:thumbsup: If you are starting a new thread, try to give it a subject that accurately describes the discussion is about. If you have a question or need help, you will want to be as specific as you can in the limited number of characters allowed for the subject title so that people who have the info you are looking for will be likely to find your thread.

:thumbsup: Black is boring, but it is the easiest color for most forum members to read. If you use a different color, don't be surprised if you get complaints.


:thumbsup: Please refrain from using text message short hand.  While we realize the popularity text message short hand, participants should not have to look it up in Google to figure out what is being said.  Please remember many of the participants in this support forum have cognitive problems from strokes, etc and this will cause them undo stress.  Staff will be reminding frequent users of text message short hand not to use it in this support forum.
