How To Ask Questions the Smart Way
Here is some good advice for how to post more productive questions on these forums:

I highly recomend that people read this. Although the article is talking specifically about hacker communities, the information there applies to this community as well. That information can also be used as good guidelines for anyone asking questions in the IRC channel.

Excellent refence. I will take this to heart as I learn maya and wish others would take it to heart as they learn the programs I know well.

About the 'Suggestions' part of this forum:

Should I write suggestions about:
*this website?
*Maya (software)? ***If not, where Should I?
*anything else?

If you're going to answer the question at all, give good value. Don't suggest kludge workarounds when somebody is using the wrong tool or approach. Suggest good tools. Re frame the question.hope you will be use it

Since both links are dead, I've recently written an article about writing questions on forums. I doubt many new users will ever read it, but it might be a helpful resource for some:

Its a very good call as there are some good books out there for all levels of Maya user or should I say 3d artists. So post up links for books you may have read or want to get an opinion on one before you buy it....
