If you have posted in the wrong forumsection by mistake

Create a new post / thread in the right section, and then delete the first one:
open a new tab to the forum and go to the right section
go to the tab with your misplaced post (wrong section)
select "Edit"
copy your post (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C)
go to the new tab (right section)
paste (Ctrl-V) the copied text in the right thread / start a new thread
go back to your misplaced post (copy the title if it was a new thread), then delete it
paste the title in the new post (if it was a new thread...)
click "Submit"
This is the easiest and fastest way !
Of course you can also contact the Admins / Moderators via PM, but then it can take some time to move your post.... ;)

When posting about software (programs / drivers etc.)

Terms like "last version", "this driver?", & "the latest Driver" doesn´t help.
When referring to software always post both the filename and a link to the software.
This is (of course) important especially when you are requesting help... ;)

Make sure your posts are readable

Do not post a long text in one BIG chunk, because such posts are hard to read.
Use linefeed (CR/LF) = press ENTER and start a new sentence on a new line.
Try to put the text in groups with not more than 10 lines in each group,
and place an empty line between each group.
This is (of course) important especially when you are requesting help... ;)
Because if other members can´t read your post then don´t expect any...

When posting (non-) compatible programs

Please follow this template as it makes it easier for me,
and it makes sure that the websites / information is correct according to you.

When Posting a Problem or Question

Please include the specifications of your computer.
A good place for this so you don't forget is your signature,
which can be accessed by going to: User Control Panel > Profile > Edit Signature.

Please include this information:

Processor Speed and Type
Amount of RAM
Graphics Card
Sound Card*
Motherboard*
External Peripherals / Devices*
Operating System
Any server roles / features you have installed*

*depending on the question or problem, hard drive size is optional.

For example:
2.0GHz AMD Athlon X2 dual-core processor QL-64
3GB DDR2 RAM / 250GB HDD
ATI HD 3200 discrete graphics card
Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
Security: USER-account, EAM-full, Comodo´s HIPS, Windows FireWall, WinPatrol+, HOSTS-file,
UAC (Max), Sandboxie, EMET, Pale Moon with Noscript, AD-Block & DoNotTrackPlus,
a working "main CPU" & "2 optical input units".
