How to ask a question?
Posted on 21-Jul-2005 19:20
Perhaps one of the most important Knowledge Base articles posted on Microsoft's website:
After posting a question to a professional forum or newsgroup and waiting for a while, you get the following answer(s) from the active forum/newsgroup members:
"Your question does not contain all the required information needed for us to help you. Please re-write your question, this time make sure you have all the needed info and we'll try to help."
Another symptom of this error is getting the following answer:
"You question has been answered a zillion times. Please use a decent search engine and/or search our archives before posting any future questions"
"Google is your best friend">
Other variations of the same answer exist, all depending on the forum/newsgroup quality and percentage of hackers or open source enthusiasts on the forum/newsgroup members list."
How to answer the correct question, providing the correct information so others can help you? Read on theKnowledge Base...
: Microsoft has updated the KB entry with different wording from the original... You will notice some changes from what I have here.
