    <li>If you can show that you at least made some effort to figure something out,
--- you will get a better response.  In particular, if you have in mind some idea

+++ <li>A very common response to user questions is "What are you trying to
+++ accomplish"?  Try to supply that information when you first ask the question,
+++ and you will get a definitive answer that much sooner.  Cocoon is a rich
+++ framework that gives you a lot of tools, so that it's not always obvious to new
+++ users which tool set is the best to use for a particular problem.  New users
+++ sometimes get wrapped around the axle on some detail of the solution they are
+++ trying to make for a given scenario, and then end up posting to the list to ask
+++ how to do some exotic or bizarre thing.  If you can take a step back and
+++ describe the scenario itself, the more experienced users may be able to suggest
+++ one or more simpler solutions.</li>
    <li>If you ask for help with something, and then you later figure it out for
    yourself, please follow up on the list and describe what you did to fix the
    problem.  We like to prepend "SOLVED: " to the Subject: line when doing this.
