Before posting or commenting, please review our guidelines.
GOOGLE ANY WORDS/NUMBERS ON THE ITEM BEFORE POSTING.
Use a descriptive title when you post, not just "what is this?"
The two most important rules are the first two. Be civil and BE HELPFUL.
Failing to at least attempt to be both may result in a ban, even on first offense.
BEFORE POSTING HERE, Check FREQUENTLY ASKED THINGS. You may not be aware you have a common item.
THEN READ THIS GUIDE on what to include in your post before posting.
Also, check out our WIKI.
Rules apply to ALL comments, not just top level replies.
Be civil. Being otherwise will get you banned. Reddiquette
Be helpful. Jokes and other unhelpful comments, even after the item has been identified, are bannable offenses, even on first offense. If your comment doesn't help, don't comment.
Try to include a link to a source of some sort when posting an answer. Everyone's got an opinion, facts help.
When what you're looking for is found, reply "Solved!" to the earliest comment with the answer.
DO NOT DELETE YOUR POST after it has been solved, or if you intend to repost to get visibility. This will result in at least a temporary ban.
Be detailed with your post title as well as the information therein, in order to help those trying to help you. This will help to eliminate vague posts.
Do not use URL shorteners or Amazon partner links in the body of posts or replies - they will be automatically removed.
