    1010 * It is useful to simply 'Ask' a question directly, giving enough context to the issue to permit people to answer, (there is no need to 'Ask to Ask'). Chat is a medium where people 'idle' in the channel a lot of the time as they are busy with other tasks, so give them a few minutes to respond when they notice the question on the channel.
     11 * As-always, it helps to ask questions in the [http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html smart way]
     12 * If you are trying to catch the attention of someone in-specific then prefix your question with their nick. e.g.:
     13{{{
     14you: I have a problem with x. I have tried y & z, but all I can see is ...
     15you: flavour ^
     16flavour: Hi you, I think what you need is ...
     17}}}
    1118 * If you need help & none is forthcoming, then suggest sending a mail to the relevant '''[CommunityCommunication#MailingLists Mailing List]''' (although it may be worth hanging around in IRC for people to follow-up with you)
