The deifintive QBASIC forum posting placement posting guideby Dean Menezes (Login dean.menezes)
Note that Non-QBASIC forum is listed under "Non-QB" but Linux is listed under "Non-Programming"
This means that Non-QBASIC is only for non-QBASIC PROGRAMS, not WINDOWS questions. Windows questions go in Community Cafe, the off-topic forum.
Also, any questions about UNIX shell scripting go in Non-QBASIC, because that would be a programming question and Linux is listed by Pete under non-programming.
If a response to another question in a different forum uses something from a different forum (e.g. ASM, etc.) the answer goes in the other forum.
For example: if someone asked "How do I access the Internet from QBASIC."
The answer is "You can't in QBASIC."
The answer is NOT:
- ASM calls to TCP/IP stack in pure DOS (would go in ASM)
- wget, curl, netcat, inetd (would go in Linux, unless you also posted source code, in which case that part of the post would go in C or whatever language forum it goes in).
Questions in the wrong forum get a response in all caps, especially if they have the words Linux, GNU/Linux, Linus (even if talking about Peanuts character), Torvalds, Toblerone, Tux, or penguin in them.
