It's even worse than it appears.

  • Three things your report must include: #
    • What you did.#
    • What you expected to happen.#
    • What actually happened.#
  • It may help to include a screen shot if it reveals something that is hard to communicate in words. #
  • If you can access the JavaScript console, take pictures of any messages in red, or anothing else that sounds like an error message.#
  • If you're using free software rememeber that any person who helps you is doing the work for free. Make it easy for them and they're more likely to help. And when it works, say thank you. For good karma. 💥#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
