[Sticky] General Posting Guidelines
We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question. Here are some general guidelines.
1. Tag your posts!
It is of extreme importance to tag your posts, tagging your post allow all users to find your questions, answers and improve the overall experience when interacting with the community.
2. Anti-Spam measures
We use strong measures to keep the forum free of unsolicited content. The first time you register in the forum some of the features will not be enabled (for example file uploads) until we can confirm the user's account is being used for legit purposes. If you need to upload a file but do not have access please use the form available in the main page to contact the admin.
3. Please use SEARCH first!
There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It’s easy to search – just click the “Search” button at the top right of the page.
4. Be DESCRIPTIVE and Don’t use “stupid” topic names
PLEASE post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects, they don’t get attention and only annoy people).
Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :
Help me, Hello, Very urgent, I have a question
Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.
Here is a good example of a way to post a question
" What EDR solutions do you recommend?"
" How many controls of annex A in ISO27001 are compulsory?"
" What standards are available for maritime cyber security?
" What resources do your recommend to prepare for my CISSP certification?"
Be concise and to the point, if need it before asking the question, take your time to describe the situation. The more time you spend writing your question and providing context, the higher the chances to find help soon.
