L1T User Reference Lookup Thread


AKA the L1t User Reference Lookup Table (LUT) because why not? :stuck_out_tongue: :smiley_cat:

TABLE OF CONTENTS .This will also be at the bottom of the thread. Didn't know what would be easier for you guys.

Category Table of Contents

Because the software that the forum runs on does not all posts to be moved, a Table of Contents will be used to allow browsing of this thread to be easier.


People come here to seek help from our extensive list of knowledgeable users. But unfortunately many times they do not get the answer(s) they need, or realistically any answers at all, because the right ( or any ) people do not view the thread.

Now this could also be due to the fact that the creator of a thread does not include enough relevant information into the OP. If this is the case, even if you do not know the topic, please ask the creator of the thread nicely to add any and all relevant info to the OP.

Or it could also be because the creator of a thread has a title for his/her thread that is unclear. If this is the case, please ask the OP to rename the thread to something more relevant to what the creator is asking for from the thread.

What is the point of this thread? & How do I sign up?

This thread aims to be a sign up sheet for people to volunteer their knowledge and be ready to help others who have problems dealing with an area of their expertise.

Which basically means that this thread is a phone book, where the creator of a thread can reference this list of names and pick and choose who they want to come and help them. Alternatively, if the OP of a thread does not include a name or a list of names for help, please as a helpful user of the forums, add a user or some users to their thread.

To sign up, all you would have to do is find the category that you would like to help in and add your username. But please read the next section Signing Up ( Thread Organization ) to help keep all posts coherent to one another.

Signing Up ( Thread Organization )

I do want to have some sort of thread organization for this topic. So I’ll just have all of my posts be editable wikis and users will be able to edit themselves into the post category that fits them the best.

Please follow the format used byMr.O. (@oO.o):

As you can see, he signed up with his username under the category that he is able to be of help in( the CCNA category). He then stated his experience with the subject and gave exact details of what he knows under the umbrella of the subject.

He also entered his name and content under the blockquote forum feature.
To do this. Simply enter a carrot > and then start entering yourself and experience in.

 Example Code 

> @goalkeeper had MS office cert in 2013 for Office 2007. Can help with using that software.

As you can see, I used the carrot key at the beginning, so that the end result will look like this.

@Goalkeeper had MS office cert in 2013 for Office 2007. Can help with using that software.


Now even if you sign up and you’re not @'d and you have knowledge with the subject please do not think that you are not wanted. Please do enter the thread and attempt to help or provide insight if you can.

If you are @'d ( and even if you are not), please provide as much help as possible to the creator of the thread. And if you feel as if you are starting to become less and less helpful or if the topic is starting to enter a space that you do not know, do not be afraid to tell that to the creator of the thread and @ someone else from this list if possible.

Again, hopefully, users will reference this when creating a thread, and @ people. Or hopefully, someone will @ someone for the creator of the thread.

Cleaning Up

Once you have successfully helped out the OP and he/she has no more questions or problems please @ a user that is a regular leader or mod to edit the title of the thread to say [SOLVED]. Of course, the [SOLVED] goes before the title of the thread.


[SOLVED] How do I add a new user to Windows 10?

A leader or a mod may also come in, even if not tagged, and close the thread if they think that that is the best course of action for the thread.

Opting Out

Now I can imagine this becoming annoying for people tho… So please remove yourself at any time if this becomes the case. In the case that someone does opt out, please be respectful and do not continue to @ them into threads in the future.

I Have A Question Or A Category Request

If you have a question or you see that there is a category missing from the list please bring that up in the discussion thread. I hope to address any and all questions as well as fulfill the category requests as soon as I see the post.
