Moderators, this is a test post. In the Ask Your Question screen, exact make, model and age of system isn't always listed by people posting questions. Shouldn't it be required to submit a question; especially for hardware issues? I ask users this question ALL the time (tiresome).

Thanks,


PcG

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!

Hey,

Ideally, I agree with you. However, the issue with making these fields mandatory is that many users who don't understand what that is or know very much about computers will be unable to post. Unfortunately, to me, that is very undesirable. As you'll see, there are tool-tips urging the user to post this information as well as trying to explain exactly what it is. That seems to be the most we can do.
