Please post question in the correct forum, the Q&A forum. Next time you post in the development section, ask yourself. Did I create this, or did me and someone create something? If the answer is no, please do not post in development.

Bring a new member you can have a little slack, however please read then forum rules and educate yourself on which forum to post in.

Thanks.
