      Thanks for stopping into the Fourtitude A4 (B8) forum!

      We're glad to have you here, but STOP and read this post before you continue...

      Chances are that if you have an question you're not the first. We'd love to help you out with whatever you need, but there is a lot of info already available without delay if you use the search function or consult the rest of this thread!

      Here are some helpful hints to help you find the answers you seek:

      When you are searching for an answer to a question, use the Fourtitude search function. If you cannot find the answer to your question, try new search terms or expanding to search engines. Also, don't forget to search a few other forums, listed at the end of this post, when you're searching. Your info may be there instead of in this forum.

      When you find the topic(s) you are looking for, read all of the available threads beginning to end. If you question is similar to the previous topics, post in the existing threads rather than creating a new one. Only post a new topic if your question, comment, or information is different enough to justify a separate thread. Doing it this way keeps info together in one location, making locating it that much easier for the next person who is looking.

      When posting new topics, after making sure you've searched both current threads and archived topics, please create a title relevant to your question/comment/concern. Why do this? Beyond the fact that it's just good etiquette, it helps people with the answers zero-in on your thread so they can help you AND makes it easy for the next person who has that issue to search for it.

      To have anything added to the FAQ/DIY, please send a PM to the moderators you see active in this forum, or use the report function at the bottom of the post/thread you'd like added to the FAQ. Doing that will help us fill this up with useful information as fast as possible.

      Thanks, and happy a4ing!
