Make the title to a new thread relevant to the subject you're posting about. Don't use something over-simplistic like "Electrical Question", something too broad like "NEC ??" or your username.

Here is a tip for PC users. If you have something on your screen that is too small to read then hit CTRL + to increase or zoom in and CTRL - to zoom out.

You must not be paying enough attention. There's plenty of threads I don't have a single post in.
