It would be good if this became part of the tutorial or FAQ or whatever, and had a link to this kind of material when a newcomer wants to post a question!

    I would have to agree with you. I was looking around for something that would at least give a little description of what should be shown. I remember trying to help others in a message board and the same question keeps apearing, "I have a problem," "This doesn't work," and so on, with no information and those who try and help spend a day or two asking the person and try to help define the problem, which could have been solved if the correct information was given from the start.
