Here is a suggestion for posting in the forums.  Use descriptive keywords in the title of your post and avoid "generic" post titles like "Help" or "Question".  There are 2 big reasons for this. 
1)  The more descriptive the subject/title of your post, the better response you will receive from members via reply posts.  Generic post titles are often overlooked because they don't give any indication about what the post is really all about.  People browsing the forums don't have the time to click through and read each and every post, so help them out a little and it will help you too.
2)  Search engines use the titles of your posts as well when matching search results with keywords.  So the more descriptive or accurate the title or subject of your post, the better chance someone will find it in their search engine results (without even having visited before) and possibly respond.
Thanks for listening!!  cool

Thanks, Peter, for the suggestion.  It will help me not skip very important posts.  I think it will actually save some time because I do try to read every post.
