My Opera Posting RulesPlease follow these rules when posting.
Remember that people are there to help, and they do so of their own free will. By following these rules, you make sure that people are more willing to help.
First of all: Download the latest version of Opera!
1. Search before posting. Before posting a question or comment, please take the time to search the forum or blog for existing discussions on the subject you are thinking of posting about. If you find an existing thread or blog post which seems to describe the problem you are having, post there instead of starting a new discussion.
2. Post in the right place. Try to find the most appropriate forum or blog for your post. If it's a Windows specific issue, post it in the Windows forum. If it's a mail issue, post it in the mail forum. Requests should always be posted in the wish-list forum. Questions and comments about this or other Opera sites should be posted in the site feedback forum.
If you are in doubt whether you are posting in the right forum or not, mention that in your thread, and a moderator can help by explaining it to you, and moving the thread to the right forum. Blog comments can not be moved by a moderator, and may be deleted or edited.
3. Use descriptive thread titles. When posting a new thread to a forum, try to summarize your post in the title. It should reflect the content of your post. "Opera crashes" is a bad summary. "Opera crashes when logging into Yahoo Mail" is a good summary. Include the site name, if applicable. As a rule of thumb, use at least three words in the subject. However, try to keep it brief.
4. Be specific and to the point. Lengthy rants can be a pain to read, and so the chances of a useful reply are drastically reduced. Remember, your audience is comprised of other Opera users who help you in their own free time. Keep it brief, and focus on the actual topic. Use paragraph and bulleted lists to make it easier to read.
5. Include all relevant information. Describe the problem briefly, but completely. Include the full error message, if any. If you are having problems with a page, include the exact URL and explain what the problem is and how it can be reproduced. List your operating system, system specs (CPU, RAM, etc.), and so on.
6. Stay on-topic. Make sure that your post is directly relevant to the forum thread or blog post it is posted in. Hijacking existing discussion with off-topic posts is not allowed.
7. Respect local rules. Forums and blogs may have local rules that go beyond these. Always make sure you have read and understood any additional rules before you start participating in discussions.
After posting a new forum thread, you may want to report back if a problem you posted about is solved, in order to let others know what worked for you. Other people may benefit from this in the future.
