    This may sound a little rude and somewhat EoF material, but I'm getting a bit tired of seeing question threads on the 3DS tutorial section. It also says NOT to ask questions here or else you will recieve a warning. So here's a handy guide:
    1) Check what problem you are having first (eg Is it a hardware problem? Trouble with Homebrew? Need help with CFW or flashcards?)
    2) Ask your question on the appropiate board (Hardware problems would go in the Console and Accessories section, Homebrew problems would go in the Homebrew and Emulation section and CFW/flashcard problems would go in the Flashcards and Custom Firmware section)
    2a) At least do a simple Google search for your problem first and / or read the opening post of the appropriate thread (if applicable).
    2b) Be specific when describing your problem. No one will help you if you just tell us "It doesn't work".
    3) Wait patiently for someone to help with your problem
    Happy Question-asking!

    Add to that:
    2a) At least do a simple Google search for your problem first and / or read the opening post of the appropriate thread (if applicable).
    2b) Be specific when describing your problem. No one will help you if you just tell us "It doesn't work".

    I'd also advocate having specific subforums for such question threads (vs, for example release and tutorial threads). The actually useful stuff gets buried much too fast here.

    If you can also include in your tutorial to not make clickbait topic titles.

    For example topics I see frequently post in their title "Kernel access 10.5"

    And then in their post they said "is there kernel access on 10.5?". I know this must bother other people too.

    Make a question thread where you ask all your questions. Works for me.

    Well, I actually did make one of those months ago. It only lasted about a week until people stopped posting on it.

    should require users to read this thread before signup...and possibly before posting.

    This needs to remain up. Seems like the 3DS hacking scene is full of unaware, unknowing noobs who just can't read the rules...

    This is all common sense. People lacking common sense will not find this thread and do what this thread is trying to prevent, therefore making this thread useless.. lol
