  • Choose what type of topic you’re going to post. Decide if your topic is a question, conversation, or idea
  • Create a short but descriptive title. It should summarize what your topic is about. This way other users can see directly if they are able to help you.
  • Describe what your topic is about. Describe your issue as detailed as possible. Other users can help you better when they know what you are trying to do (and where you do not get any further). 
  • Choose the relevant category to post your question/conversation.
