Thanks Tim...Members helpful suggestions are most welcome and appreciated with the exception of the very few with the unnecessary sarcastic responses to people with limited knowledge or understanding of computer speak who don't always fully comprehend. I for one, on occasion, have informed one in particular to skip my requests for help, but otherwise thanks again to you all for being there and offering your help I greatly appreciated it. Thank you all. Herb
Thanks everyone for your help!

It is good wisdom!

At WorldStart we want a helpful fun community and it's come to our attention recently that certain users (both new and long time) have taken on a tone of posting we don't want to see here.

Examples of things we don't want to hear:

"That's a dumb question, newb windows key?!! DUH"
"Use the search, that's why it's on the page."
"If you READ what I said."
"You're not helping me/not listening to me/not doing what I want"

Examples of ways to communicate the same message in a better way:

"That's an easy question to answer, you hit the windows key on the keyboard to bring up the start menu"
"I found a thread about this exact same question for you with some helpful information, link here to that thread, you know you can also use the search function to find answers because a lot of people have very similar/same questions"
"From what your saying it seems like you may not have followed all the steps I suggested, could you tell me which ones you did and what happened?"
"Thanks for the info but I'm still confused/I don't think that's exactly what I'm looking for/I think I may have a different way of doing that"

If you see a post/thread that violates this spirit please report it.

Thank you,

Tim Alexander

After reading Tim's above text I decided to come back and help when I have
time....but only until I get cursed out again.
