If you want to get timely help from someone...

  • Don't ask to ask, just ask. Also Please Don't Say Just Hello In Chat.
    • If you say everything you need in one line when you first contact me, I will be able to read what is wrong, what needs to be done, and can do it right away when I read them.
    • If you don't do ^, I will need to wait for your response on missing parts, and I might be doing something else (with much higher priority), or even sleeping when you respond.
    • In short, try to explain "what went wrong, what needs to be done, and why" in one line. This will guarantee the fastest response time.
      • Exception: If you need to contact me with private information but you don't know where to contact me, email me and say "I emailed you", or you can PM revi on LiberaChat.
  • If you asked something, be patient.
    • I am not on call and waiting for your questions 24/7[1]. I have things to do in life, I might be driving, I have to sleep.
    • If you send more messages, I will need to read more messages, that means you will get delayed response.
  • To Be Written...
  1. Explanation: 24 hours, 7 days: this means "always"
