Table of Contents (Wiki)

This is a wiki. That means (almost) anyone can edit it, especially YOU.

Basic rules for this wiki
  1. If your post fits under an existing category, then put it there. If not, then add a new (somewhat broad) category.
  2. Links only (not paragraphs). Use the hyperlink tool to give an appropriate name (ie solutions should what is being fixed/ how to fix it) so that people can find it what they are looking for.
  3. When sharing a solution make sure that your link goes to the comment with the solution in it (if the OP contains the solution, then share that).
  4. External links (non-Pimax/non-forum) should be labeled as [External].
  5. Keep things clean (figuratively and visually). No one likes a messy post.
  • When sharing forum links, feel free to use user links (aka ending in ?u=YourUsername). It is fine to take credit for a good share.
