The OS is very important and will be better if this information is in the text also. The same about the version of LO. But, I think, the most important is write clearly the question, describing the problem objectively and with no laziness. Especially when the doubt envolves the operation of the software. However, this is only a personal vision, based on my experience in other "forums".

The language of the installation could be useful I think.

An attached file with a minimum example of the issue can be helpful. If you do not have enough Karma points to attach a file, you may use other one-click filehosters.

"use other one-click filehosters" sorry...what does that mean?

I would like to add that information on which steps where made until a problem occurs can help to find the route cause and as such give a chance to find the solution.
