[HTC Elf: Posting Rules, Please READ BEFORE posting.]
ATTENTION!!We are glad that our community is growing really fast. Unfortunately, the number of topics in the threads of the forums grow in a very larger manner
Unfortunately not every user is aware of the general forum usage and posting rules
As a direct consequence to that MODERATORS will apply the Elf forum, a very strict moderating policy which might imply:
immediate thread deletion when newly created thread addresses an already discussed topic;
immediate thread deletion when newly created thread addresses an issue such as "Which ROM is the best", "Elf vs iPhone", etc.;
immediate post deletion in the case of double posting;
immediate thread deletion and a temporary BAN in case of thread spamming (to be more exact, creating the same thread twice, with different name, etc.);
immediate thread deletion when newly created thread subject lines are not as per posting policy mentioned below
closing old threads (you can always PM a MOD with the link of the thread you want to reopen);
eventually deleting old threads
Please consider a few guidelines before posting to the Elf Forum and Subfora! (also applies to other Fora!)
DO check whether your question has been asked before!
There are some questions that have been asked before several times.
Use the “Search
” function on the brown menu bar on the top of the page. There you have the options the have Google search inside XDA-developers site or to use the built-in forum search
If your search has no / unsatisfying results, try with different keywords
If your question has been asked, read the thread or use the “Search
” function to search through that specific thread
If you don’t find the answer, try posting in that thread as chances are bigger someone can help you.
DO read the Wiki!
Chances are that the answer to your question is already to be found in the Wiki
. So please check the Wiki
and read the FAQs
DO edit the Wiki!
All the information that is stored in the Wiki
is dynamic. Therefore it can be edited by everyone. Updating the Wiki
in this way leaves us with an up to date Wiki
which can successfully answer other user’s question only by reading it.
Also posting an answer you get on the forum to the Wiki
helps other users with future similar questions.
Don't be afraid of editing the Wiki if you don't understand the wiki syntax:
Formating may seem a bit complicated at the beginning, but you don't have to care too much if you just want to add content, add it as if you were writing a text document and sure someone more experienced with wiki syntax will edit it after and correct the bad formating mistakes.
As a rule of thumb, let’s try to maintain the following structure:
(General talk. Post general issues related to Diamond, software, skins, fixes, tips, tricks, OS issues, etc.)
(Specific talk. Post issues related to upgrading only, Utilities, HardSPL, Radios, unbricking, etc.)
(Specific talk. Post issues related to accessories only, SD Cards, headsets, remote, etc.)
ATTENTION CHEFs and USERS!
