Enjoy the forums and happy posting!!
Start of related discussions about the above rules. Feel free to discuss the rules here...
Sometime i found very difficuties and time taking process in putting questions in forum bcos i have to elaborate the whole pictorial process in words.
Why Cant we make our this forum more Interactive in way of asking questions by allowing us to attach print preview of what we face in the system.
If you kindly give a glance on this issue and try to implement it for us, forum members like us will be benefited and it will be beneficial for those who are all into in this forum.
Thanks & Regards
Please ask such questions in the [Suggestion and Comments|https://forums.sdn.sap.com/forum.jspa?forumID=40&start=0] forum. I don't work on the forums backend so I can't do anything about that, but in that forum your input is very welcome.
And there is a feature to attach additional information to your posting. I'm not sure if it is open to everyone but I can attach files to my postings. There is button to do so below the editor window.
Edit: Just heard that this feature is not open for everyone as we would face big problems with people exchanging copyrighted material. But if you have some very good description how to solve an issue and need screenshots to explain: Use the blogs or the wiki.

An explanation for [Spoon Feeding|http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/faq-emporium/53368-faq-what-spoon-feeding.html] from another forum.

I agree with you - and many experts have answered the questions here and elsewhere before, so using the search is much faster and better than expecting them to either type it out again or someone sends you yet another link to something you could have found yourself.
Personally, I find all these stupid links as answers one of the biggest problems because it kills the search...
So if all of us who answer questions as well as when we ask them try to discipline ourselves to good quality, then it will be double-best!
Update: Kindly take note that the Rules of Engagement were updated in July 2008! (incase you missed the changes)
Important changes are:
- The rules will be enforced in all forums.
- Use of proper language (avoid sms txt spk plz)
- Thank others by assigning points (if you ask a question).
- Do not ask for points (if you answer a question).
- There is a limit of 10 unresolved questions (see [this blog|https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/wlg/10171]).
Specifically on the topic of points, I would like to add that there is a good cause behind this.
Please see [Quality Follow-up Blog|https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/wlg/10171] and follow up on threads which you open.
