    i see alot of new threads posted everyday on this forum and alot of them have no idea how to ask questions. its simple, but most replys to the thread are people asking for more info... so this lil guide may help some of you properly ask questions

    1. Be specific in the Title.

    WRONG way to ask: "help me please"
    RIGHT way to ask: "Snes9x Freezing, Need Help"

    2. When your actually typing up the question, again, be specific

    WRONG way to ask: "my snes emulator keeps freezing, what do i do?"
    RIGHT way to ask: "im currently running 1.50 firmware and using snes9x v.0.4.2 and everytime i try to load Chrono Trigger, it freezes. any suggestions?"

    3. Demanding help will not get you help faster. be patient and respectful of the forum elders and youll get youre answers faster.

    4. You only need ONE thread to get the question answered. Making multiple threads in different sections isnt gonna get them answered faster, it will just piss people off. Most of us click on "view new threads" so we'll see your thread regardless of how many times u post it. Please dont do this

    5. Like i said before, be VERY specific when you asked questions on this forum. It wastes peoples time if we have to ask you what firmware you have and what motherboard you have. Specify firmware, motherboard version, etc

    ill add more tips as i think of them.

    Great sticky,

    I just want to add that I think the right way to ask a question is:

    I've read every sticky, used the search button on this site, googled every variation of my question imaginable, searched every other PSP Forum and I still haven't found an answer.

    "im currently running 1.50 firmware and using snes9x v.0.4.2 and everytime i try to load Chrono Trigger, it freezes. any suggestions?"

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    I wouldn't mind seeing a good sticky on different search techniques, but then I am pessimistic that it would get used.

    Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed! The ability to modify a PSP is insignifiicant next to the power of the force.

    well it would be easy to answer this if you explained what you needed help with? does it have to do with asking questions?
    just like julie said

    "2. When your actually typing up the question, again, be specific"

    and post in the right area

    before asking questions try to use search button first and if youve searched enough with no luck post your question with specific topic and post in the right section....
