    [SIZE=+1]This a short list of frequently asked questions in this device forum and the answers often given as a response. It should serve as a starting point for gathering knowledge and finding solutions to many common problems. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=+1]Q1: How do I ........................................................................................................?[/SIZE]
    Replace this block of text with a short answer for the above question. If the answer is complicated or otherwise lengthy, avoid the temptation to provide a full answer here.

The answer then should provide a brief summary or overview and direct the reader to the document providing a full coverage of the topic.​

    [SIZE=+3]Template Usage[/SIZE]​


    The indented block below contains the official template's BBCode.

    1) Copy the contents of the entire block and paste into the "Edit Post" window. This will form the basis of the FAQ post.

    2) The only things to be changed in the template:

    - The device name. Use the official forum name designated for the device.
    - The number of questions and answers. Duplicate them as necessary and renumber appropriately.
    - The question and answers.

    3) Do not incorporate extras, change text styles, or add any flourishes to the document. The purpose of using a template is to achieve consistency.

    4) Do not add additional lists, guides, indices, etc. as subsequent posts in the thread. The FAQ should be a standalone document. Separate the others out into their own threads and create a Q&A item in the FAQ with a link to them.

    5) Use the official title for the FAQ when posting the document: "Frequently Asked Questions" (optionally add a device name to the title. e.g. "Frequently Asked Questions - Amazon Kindle Fire")

    6) Add tags to the document for it to come up in search results. Some suggestions:

    - "Frequently Asked Questions", "FAQ"
    - Manufacturer name, model name, model number (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S II I9100)
    - Any other short phrases representative of the FAQ content

    7) Contact a forum moderator or report the post and ask to make the FAQ a sticky in the device's "Q&A, Help and Troubleshooting" forum.

    8) Post in this thread with a link to the new FAQ to have it included in post #3.

    9) Consider disabling your signature for the FAQ OP as it makes for a cleaner appearance.

If the answer is truly that involved, this should be answered in another thread outside of this document.  The answer then should provide a brief summary or overview and direct the reader to the document providing a full coverage of the topic.[/INDENT]

    Good job, mate. Glad to see the original idea lives on and progresses. I'm happy to see users feeling the value of such a thread an taking initiative.

    As I said, good job in putting this template together however it does look a bit convoluted. Imho it should be a short explanation with BB code,nothing else.

    Regards

    [HELP THREAD] (Device) | Ask any question | Noob friendly. by malybru

    Hi,​



    help.png




    A big thank you to @ undercover for the idea and inspiration behind this thread.


    First things first. I strongly advise you to read THIS thread before posting ANYTHING on XDA.Particularly the part about SEARCHING.

    Then, have a quick look at the links at the bottom of this post. You might find what you need right away.

    Third. Even if you do get your question answered, please, do come back and read the links in this post to educate yourself. You'll be surprised how much time and frustration it will save you in the future.You might even be able to help others with your new-found knowledge. :p

    ASK ANY QUESTION HERE,adb, drivers, superCID etc....... You will either get an answer or will get pointed in the right direction. No abuse towards noobs is tolerated here!


    Before asking questions!

    Try and follow these 10 golden rules:

    • Don’t be rude
    • Try to be as precise and as short as possible
    • Do your homework before asking (Google, search newgroups, read tutorials,FAQs Known issues etc..)
    • Try to ask one question at the time
    • Proof-read your question after writing it
    • Don’t expect others to do your work
    • Avoid PM and private email if other channels exists
    • Remind yourself that people help you voluntarily
    • Read and follow up on suggestions
    • If you get a solution let others know

      Thanks

    [GENERAL HELP] Post Your Questions Here Instead of Making a New Thread - abhishekr700

    Many people are joining xda on daily basis. Some of them join the forum to get custom ROMs while some join in order to get some of their problem that they are facing with their phones solved.

    There are dedicated threads for ROMs but what about HELP/QUESTIONS??

    People generally straight away start a new thread to get their doubts solved. But this can lead to chaos in the forum.

    I'm creating this thread as an alternative to *New Threads* that aim to resolve a question.

    Not only this, this thread can also become a Database kind of place where people can look if their question is already solved or not...

    I request all members of the ASUS ZENFONE 2 sub-forum to help and answer some questions posted here if they can.

    I hope you guys get the idea behind this thread...
