...lack thereof, really. It's not a terribly common occurrence, but it happens annoyingly often, and frequently results in responders wasting their time attempting to diagnose and offer solutions to problems that are either non-existent, or real, but erroneously stated.
Specifically, the problem is posters attempting to describe what they see
on their screens, rather than posting screenshots of what's actually there
, and thereby diverting troubleshooting efforts in useless directions.
In view of that, I suggest that a "sticky" post be placed at the top of each forum's thread list requesting that posters include screenshots of ANYTHING that could contribute to responders getting a clearer idea of what they're attempting to describe.
And in conjunction with that, I further suggest that Image Tags be activated to facilitate viewing of said screenshots.
Or, in lieu of activating Image Tags, I suggest including instructions for posting images on Imgur in the thread. These are my instructions:
To post a screenshot or other type of image...
- Go to https://imgur.com/upload.
- Either drag your image into the window, choose (browse for) it, or paste your image or its URL.
- Click on Grab Link > Copy Link in the next screen to copy your image's URL to your clipboard.
- Create a link using FTM's "Insert Link" tags...5th icon from the right.
