Topic: Forum Usage - best practices

As the FrontAccounting forum is community managed and driven, please use it diligently and with care. Whilst every effort is taken to ban advertising and undesirable SEO activities, it is incumbent on the user fraternity to report any

1. irrelevant posts,
2. duplicate postings and
3. postings in old threads with seemingly relevant matter often taken from other valid posts.

All of these and others not listed here introduce needless complexity and waste of human resources in moderating the board. Attempting to maintain a Hall of Shame would be an additional waste of resources.

When posting issues, please list

1. version numbers of Platform OS, Browser, PHP, MySQL, Webserver, plugins, upgrade path and locale among others as necessary
2. relevant Menu Navigation sequences,
3. screenshots appropriately annotated (host the images/documents anywhere - flickr, dropbox, etc) and linked into the posts,
4. use BBCode to format your posts

Format your BBCode using the likes of WYSIWYG BBCode Editor.

FastStone Screen capture was free till v5.3 and makes for good screenshots although PrtScreen button and MS Paint do the job as well. Various portable ones are available too.

An alternative screen capture for MS Windows is Greenshot. Open Source.

Greenshot does not yet do scrolling window capture (FastStone does). It, however, has a portable version and a non installer zip version too.

Forum Usage Stats in the last 1 year is attached herewith.
Averaging a little over 1 new valid user every 2 days, ie., 17+ a month.
A little under a post a day, ie., 26+ a month.

A drastic dwindling of activity probably means that most FA users are now adept in using it and others get assistance offline or by searching the forum and the wiki.
