How To Ask Questions On Online Forum Or Site?

The topic might be silly and discussed in multiple posts. Lot of people have no clue how to ask questions on online forums or sites. They make assumptions which make it difficult to respond. One such example is here: #-Link-Snipped-#

The post reads -

Title: Helppp!!??
hello..i am completely confused about ma career...
can u help??
Now there would be thousands of engineers who'd be reading this thread and have no clue about the content just by looking at the title. I've modified the title to make it more sensible.

Secondly, the content gives no idea to the responder about what to offer in help. Had this post been on the lines of -

Hello Engineers!

I need your help in making better choice in my career. I'm a final year electronics & communications engineering student with average academics. I wish to work in PCB designing but not sure whether there are any direct opportunities.

This year, only one company visited our campus and offered jobs in IT industry. I applied to it but couldn't get through.

I need suggestions on courses I might take to ensure that there will be job opportunities for me and any references which might help me take a better decision.

Thanks! Awaiting responses.
Above questions will attract lot of specific responses which will be very useful.

Always make sure that you describe your questions so that it's easier for others to help you.
