Maybe the poster is asking what is the best way to post a technical question?
(1) Add as much detail as possible, for example OS and version, hardware if relevant, and other important details.
(2) Post output of log files, error messages, system commands, and other output that helps people understand your problem. Wrap this output in code tags or quote tags (code tags are generally used).
(3) Write a descriptive subject text. Do not post a question with subjects like "HELP ME! or "URGENT!"... or "GREP', etc. Take the time to create a subject that provides readers (and search engines) with something useful.
(4) Post in the correct forum. When in doubt, post in the "dummies" forum. OS specific questions should be posted in the same OS section.
(5) If you have written scripts or code, post that code in the forums wrapped in code tags. We need to see what you are doing and what you have tried.
(6) Do not post links to other web pages unless you have been around for a while. We delete spam very quickly here and you cannot self-promote here until you have shown a significant ability to contribute here. The forums are not a "fly-by-night place to post links to build your page rank.
