Question-whiteAsk a question: 3 suggestions for better asking

Please_share
by Karen Eglinton - May 06, 2010 Star_s4,408 views

This is a great site, with good information. The information shared seems to be done as a service to all, in the spirit of a true forum. Here are some of my thoughts on asking questions:

1. Use a search to see if your question is already answered. Often, your question has occurred to others and you can find an answer right away.

2. If you cannot find an answer, ask your question completely and respectfully. Saying, "____ doesn't work," is not very helpful to anyone, MOST of all YOU!

Be sure to include any information about the problem or question, such as:
--what operating system and version you are using;
--what browser and version you are using;
--when it happens;
--where or what has happened beforehand;
--if it happens with just one person's account and/or on other computers;
--if the problem happens only once in a while or consistently;
--what you may have tried to fix it and what results you found to help;
--any other information that you might think would be helpful.

3. Ask your question as clearly as you can but keep the description as short as you can.

If someone is going to answer, they will generally spend more time in answering your question than you will in asking it. It is only fair to give them guidance so that they do not have to guess at the facts.

Your question has more chance of being answered if you do the above things. I'm betting there are some tips that I have missed. I cannot wait to see if there are any great additions to this post.

I am running Windows Vista and my browser is Firefox. As of 12:30 am I have not been able to use the snag bar. When I click the snag button nothing happens at all. the snag button is completely dead, I am able to click on the cog wheel and it takes to the toolbar preference page where it successfully communicates and logs in. When I click on the snagged items tab it to successfully communicates, logs in and checks for permission, but no items show and the following is what I see "Last scan: Snag Bar is stopped. (refreshes every minute)" I've tried to uninstall the snag bar and re-install it several times the problem still exist. I would appreciate any help you can give me on this matter. Thank You in advance...

GU is having problems with accept all gifts, once you click on it, it freezes. Also pages downloading with errors on them unable to play games properly, if you click on the icon to the left after page downloads it reads done, but with errors on page click icon its the GU site stopping the page from downloading properly. Also in games can't request parts/items from friends to help on missions or request help.

My ACCEPT all is not working!!!

the snag bar is a wonderful feature if used correctly . By adding the sheep and pig adoption to the snag bar along with orchard trees , I believe there to be problems going to arise of great significance.. It is taking precious items that people have worked very hard for. People who are snagging these items are not returning to say thank you . These items need to be removed from the snag bar immediately . I do believe in not doing so this problem is going to Super Size way past a requesting post. . This is not a threat in anyway. It is information that somehow is not being dealt with in the order of its importance!!

when is snag bar going to be fixed

very useful information, just a shame some people took this post as a platform to ask their own questions when this was intended as a guide not an open house lol. what i personally would also find helpful when someone asks a question is if others who have the same problem would refrain from posting " happened to me" etc and maybe just like the post so those of us who have the problem dont have to wade through lots of useless posts looking for the answer.
