    v17 v18  
    7272The other place to search is the mailing list. If you *must* search blogs or forums, make sure that you check the date of the post and the django version before complaining that it doesn't work.

     74Note that the documentation is excellent, but not perfect. It is mostly written by developers, and they often leave out things that are glaringly obvious to them, but not so obvious to the end user. At the same time they are very receptive when this is pointed out by us. Do file a document bug if you come across such problems.

    9193* Keep repeating the same question - if anyone has an answer, you will get it sooner or later. 
    9294* Use the phrase 'it doesn't work'. The most common question on IRC is: 'What does doesn't work mean?' 
     95=== Language === 
     96For many of us, English is not our native language. Try to follow English syntax, but do not waste everyone's time by apologising. People will realise your difficulty and will ask for clarification if needed. However avoid using 'sms-speak' and refrain from being overly casual.
