Howto: put the crackpipe down and open a window to disperse the fumes before posting a question

ok, so you have a question you need the answer to, you have come to the right place but you need to follow the three simple rules to happy posting "STOP, THINK, TYPE"

we know your busy and don't have much time so here are some template questions for you to use

question 1: asking how to do something

"How do i _thing_ with my _phone_?"

and you replace _thing_ with what you want to find out and _phone_ with which phone you have

question 2: asking about software

"Is there an application that does _thing_ available for _phone_?"

and you replace _thing_ with what you want the application to do and _phone_ with which phone you have

using those templates and following the simple "howto ask a question" howto you can get your information across quickly and easily

remember kids "STOP, THINK, TYPE" it might just save your life one day

later

and of course
