It should be clear to the most casual observer that this forum has nothing to do with hovercraft or Anguilliformes, but a title* such as this appears all the time. It gives no indication of the nature of your problem and makes it difficult for others to find solutions using the search function.

When you start a thread, forum users reading it tend to make certain assumptions:

  • You have purchased a legitimate copy of SAM from SpacialAudio.
  • You have taken the time to read through the existing documentation to set up the program.
  • You have some basic understanding of how your system works.
  • You have tried to find an answer on your own before asking for help.
The idea is that you come to the forums when you've done all that and still have a problem. When you get here, however, it would help us if we had some idea of the problem. Please try to avoid thread titles like:

    I'm stuck!
    Please help
    Errors
    WHAT DID I DO WRONG?
    Can't find
    Hello
    Question!
    Need help
    I must be a fool: Please Help
    Can you tell me what is wrong here?
    New to all this
    OK is this possible for SAM
    noob help

(All of these are actually in the forums by the way: I didn't make them up!)

A useful thread title, a query consistent with the suggestions in How To Ask Questions The Smart Way and the information requested in the Help Us Help You thread will better enable forum users to solve your problem.
