  2. Click the "Request permission to post" link at the bottom. Tell us a little about yourself and how you are using osgEarth. The Administrator will review your request to post to the forum. We do this to prevent spam.

Posting Guidelines

Please follow these simple guidelines when using the forum. Doing so will greatly increase the chances of getting a response from a community member.

  • Explain at a high level what you are trying to accomplish.
     
  • Tell us your GPU, OSG version, and osgEarth version. You can run osgearth_version --caps to get this information.
     
  • Include an earth file that will help people reproduce your issue. Use an earth file from the tests folder as a template. Even if you are doing something in code, reproducing it with an earth file is more helpful.
     
  • Crash? Post a stack trace.
     
  • Include screenshots when you are describing a visual problem.
     
  • Do not post large amounts of code. A few lines is OK, but if you feel that you absolutely must post more, use a service like pastebin.com that supports code formatting.
     
  • Do not send private emails to the administrators unless it is actually an administrative issue (problem with your account, etc.)
Enjoy!
