How can I give more information about my issue?

Giving more information about your issue is the most important part of helping you. If you cannot give more information at the time you created a thread, it will take that much time to actually solve your issue when you should've given more information to begin with.

Most Common Issues
The most common problems we have on EmuDevs is people not supplying information about their issue, they just create a thread and expect you to help without a lead. Well, we would like this to stop and show people you can be smarter than that. EmuDevs is a support website and we want to help people as fast as possible.

Finding a quick Solution
It is important you try to find a solution before posting. View How can I solve my issue without the need to post? and How can I give more information about my issue? for information on how to do so.

All Aspects
Another important aspect is making sure you've read all documentation or any information you can find on your issue. Below will be links to other FAQs that could help.
If your issue is code related, make sure you paste the code you are having issues with, instead of saying, "Hey, my script isn't working". Generally, if your issue requires any type of content that the community needs to help you with, supply it. Don't hold back anything that can help us solve your issue at a fast pace.

How can I quickly find a solution for my issue?

Use EmuDevs forum search function. If you cannot find anything there you can always use "Check if already posted" feature when creating a new thread. If you still cannot find anything, make a new thread in a section that best fits your issue.

How can I solve my issue without the need to post?

Well, first you need to think about what your issue pertains to. For example, does it relate to C++, WoW Emulation, Console Emulation, In-General Issue, etc? You can check if a thread with the same issue you're having already exists by searching the forum or using the "Check if already posted" feature when you're creating a new thread.

If you cannot find any suitable threads related to your issue, all you're left with is to post and have someone solve it for you as fast as they can. Make sure you give as much information as possible so ED community can solve your issue asap. Refer to give more information.

How can I correctly help someone with their issue?

Read Before Posting
To correctly help someone with an issue, you must look through their thread (entirely) before replying. If the support thread has a lot of replies, each helpful reply that isn't off-topic or spam might be useful when it comes to helping someone. Here at EmuDevs, we want our members to get the correct information in under at least 10 posts, but if members don't READ the existing posts entirely, that would be literally impossible.

Finding a fast, suitable solution
It is important you take all of your thinking power into a nice, clean, fast, suitable solution. We don't want members feel as if they aren't getting the correct information like they expected. To find certain solutions, you can search the board to see if this issue has already been brought up. If the issue has never been brought up and you don't have the knowledge to actually answer the support question, then don't answer it at all. We, like I said don't want members to get the WRONG information.

Overall
  • Read posts thoroughly before posting
  • Find a fast solution if you know how to handle the question
  • Don't post if you don't recall or have knowledge in the support question field of expertise
  • Don't post random downloads that doesn't help anyone
  • Don't question staff and suspect the staff's reply wasn't helpful and do something stupid. If the staff replies with a certain answer, the member can do the rest him/her self.

EmuDevs Generator is outdated, how can it be up to date?

If the generator is outdated, create a thread in the Site Support section saying it is outdated. Be specific about what is outdated, such as: Item, NPC, Quest, etc.

How can I use the paste tags (BBCode)?

It's simple. If your pastebin link is pastebin.com/jeUBWIbw then you use [ paste]jeUBWIbw[ /paste]

How come my request thread gets closed?

That's because we don't accept requests. There is no request section at all, nor is the support section considered as the request section. Read EmuDevs Rules.
