House Rules & Post Instructions
Electronics and measurements
In line with the focus of this site it's desirable that the messages are subject of electronics and measurements.
Accounts & comments
An account can be obtained after a reaction to an article is posted.
To respond to an article, it is not necessary to have an account. After posting a comment you get an email to confirm your reaction. You can then, or at a later time, choose to create an account. If a comment is placed under your account it will be immediately placed without a confirmation.
To post messages you must be logged. A message is divided into an introduction and a sequel. There are therefore two text boxes provided. The introductory text will be displayed on the overview pages. Add a short descriptive title to the message.
Images in posts
Each message can be provided with pictures. The image in the "Introduction" should be uploaded. To keep the layout of the overview pages clean, the size of the image in the introduction is adjusted to the amount posted text.
Only in the "sequel" images can be added with UBB codes [img] ... [/ img].
