    Default More tips for newbies

    I also think the following sentences would be of great help to those who do not speak the english language very well.

    1) Please
    2) Can someone help
    3) What do I have to look for.
    4) Where can I find a certain item.
    5) Would Appreciate some direcion.
    5) What do I have to look for.
    6) What do I google for.
    7) I have tried the following with these results.

    NOW DO THE FOLLOWING.
    -------------------------
    Do not start your message with the following

    1) greetings.
    2) hello.
    3) My name is...
    4) How do I.
    5) please make me a schematic.
    6) This is wrong.
    7) This is not working.


    What PIC are u using with what configuration settings.

    Explain what power supply you are using and what voltages you are getting or expecting.

    If you are using a ADC what bits range. What are you putting in what are you expecting.

    Have you done a forum search.

    Are you a registered user. (we all get upset with leechers)

    There are many examples on the net have you tried them.

    Do you have a basic understanding of electronics theory, soldering and power supplies.

    Do you have a basic understanding of Proton Pic Basic.

    If you are a student, forget it no one will build or design your project.

    Do it in small steps and find out how to do it in small steps.

    READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,READ, READ,READ
    books.

    What compilor version you are using

    What IDE version are you using

    And when all else fails read the manual.

    Maybe this could be put up as a sticky somewhere.
    Please feel free to add anything more.
    Proton User and insanely enjoying it.

    Great points for non native speaking english users.
    The language barrier can be a tough to break especially when talking about technical subjects.

    These are good tips for non native English on general politeness , and information people need to help you.

    Remember it's just as frustrating for the native english users when they don't understand too.

    Please and thankyou go a hell of a long way

    Siempre es agradable que la buena voluntad sea mutua. Que ambas partes pongan la buena intención de comprender las necesidades de quién pregunta, o necesita ayuda.

    Por supuesto que las frases "Gracias" y "Por favor" siempre son utilizadas por aquellos que tienen buenas intenciones.

    Saludos cordiales !

    And from spain to english,

    -----------------------------------------
    It's always nice that goodwill is mutual. Both parties put their good intentions? N understand the needs of qui? No questions or need help.

    Of course, the phrases "Thank you" and "Please" are always used by those with good intentions.

    Best regards!

    Hello Yoepieyoep !

    I need nothing. Just say "Hello!" to the forum and share the concepts of good treatment and leave all the good intentions to understand when one does not speak English. Because I do not speak English, I use this tool called Google Translator to understand you.

    Thanks !
    Mario
