    This forum is about collaboration and helping each other.
    You are a critical part of this process!

    As a forum user, you should take care of the questions you have posted.
    There are three important tasks that are involved in managing your questions:

    1. Keep your question posts focused
    2. Use the "Vote As Helpful" feature to indicate posts with helpful content
    3. Flag questions as answered 

    Keep your questions focused - you have a question and you need an answer - on this forum you find many people that are willing to help you.
    To support the community members that are willing to help you, you should keep your question  focused on your title.
    Please don't create endless threads with lots of additional questions.
    Open a new post instead of adding too much to an existing post. 

    Use the "Vote As Helpful" feature - this forum is about getting answers to questions.
    Helpful votes are a critical discoverability component that helps to locate information - so, please take advantage of this feature!
    They are also a motivation for the originator to share with you other types of helpful information.

    Flag questions as answered - community members need to know when your question has been sufficiently answered.
    You should not leave it up to the forum moderators to flag your questions as answered. 

    The "Vote As Helpful" feature and flagging your questions as answered are the simplest methods to say "thank you for your efforts".|
