Default How to make a good question thread.

If you are about to make a new question thread please consider the following things.

Follow the rules.
Because your thread is going to be posted at questions and answers section it doesnít mean that it doesnít obey the rules. Every thread/post inside xda forum must be posted according to the rules.
You can find the rules here.


Donít panic.
If you are panicked and trembling in fear take some deep breaths, take your time and clear your mind, being calm may guaranty an answer to your question. It will sure help you to accept the truth in case your problem canít be solved.


Search.
This is the best way to get your answer. Your question maybe have been already answered. Seriously, instead of waiting 3 days for a reply to your thread you may be able to get an answer in 5 minutes. Our beloved forum provide as a very helpful tool, the search button.


You searched the forum but nothing? Try again with different key words.
Still nothing?
Try to search on google.
So you found something but you donít understand the terms that itís using, google them, Iím sure you will get your answer.
So, you didnít find anything helpful. You can proceed on making a new thread.


Make sure that you are posting at the right sub-forum.
In our case make sure you have indeed a Galaxy S Advance.
Things are simple, if you donít own an S Advance and post your question about another phone you will just donít get any answer and furthermore there is a high possibility of your thread being spammed with posts like ďfacepalm, this section is for the S AdvanceĒ,Ēdude are you drunkĒ and such things.
If it happened to make a thread in a wrong sub-forum/section the only way to move it is by kindly pm a moderator or by reporting your thread and ask for a moving.


Your question must be posted at the Q&A.
If you donít know whether you must post your question at general (Galaxy S Advance I9070 General) or Q&A (Galaxy S Advance I9070 Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting) section just post it at the Q&A, all question threads must be posted there.


Bump existing threads.
Some questions just donít require a new thread.
But, make sure your question is similar to the threadís you are reviving. Donít use threads that are for an entire different question. Its up to your judgment to decide what thread is suitable for bumping.


Think about your question.
Donít be overwhelming, take your time and think about what way is the most suitable to post your question.


Use English.
Before starting typing your thread make sure you are writing in English.
You donít know how to speak English or you canít write in English that well?
Donít worry there is a chance that your question will be answered, if you have read the rules you already know that you can post your question at your native language but its important to add a translation to English. ďHow to do this?Ē use google translator, google translator maybe wont provide an accurate translation but it will translate most of the words, and you add the post in your native language as well, because someone from the same country can help you or he can translate in detail what you posted.
Quote:
4. Use the English language.

We understand that with all the different nationalities not everyone speaks English well, but please try. If you're really unable to post in English use an online translator, You're free to include your original message in your own language below the English translation.


Add a good title.
Every thread in order to be posted must have a title. Be smart, add an attractive one, this way more people will view your thread.
Your title must contain your problem in short words, if this canít be done add a title that partially describe it, donít add titles like ďHELPĒ, HeeeeeeeeeeeeelpĒ, ĒreadĒ, ĒnullĒ.
Also add [Q] at your title.


Describe as much as possible.
90% percent of whether your problem will be solved, depends on your question.
Describe in detail your problem.
You may add the followings:
Are you rooted?
Whatís your baseband?
What rom are you using?
What kernel are you using?
Have you flashed any mods/scripts/themes?
Have you done anything to try to solve your issue?
Add pictures if necessary.
Do you think that these informations arenít needed? They are.
Members of this forum donít use telepathy; you have to tell them what you have done.


Things you may avoid in your post.
Donít ask ďWhatís the best ____Ē(rom, kernel, theme etc)
Donít ask something before searching.
Be specific. Donít write way too big or way too small posts.
Donít be rude.


Wait patiently for answers.
Donít pm random guys asking for help.
Donít spam your question in multiple threads/posts.


Participate in your thread.

Answer kindly any possible question that you have being asked by those who are trying to help you.
Be kind to everyone.
Make them understand what you need/asking.
In any case donít abandon your thread, people maybe want to know if at last you were able to solve your problem and what way did you follow.


Be grateful.
Thank everyone who helped you, sometimes those who didnít really helped you may be great help (ďin what way?Ē keeping your thread alive, helping rejecting way of solving and moreÖ), so be grateful to them too.


Important general notes.
Be polite. Nobody will help you if you donít have good attitude.
Be organized.
Donít constantly bump your thread. As you problem remain unsolved, I think itís okay if you bump your thread once a week but you may have problems with the mods if you overdoing it.
Donít pm random guys.
Donít demand things, nobody is forced to help you.

Thatís it, I hope your problem will be solved.

Thanks.
