Tip for asking questions on StackOverflow (or anywhere else).

Don’t say “urgent”, “deadline”, “QUICK”.

These are just people answering questions because they like to share knowledge.  Saying you need an answer quick sounds ungrateful, and doesn’t speed up getting an answer, and probably reduces your chances of getting a speedy answer.

The person who is going to give you the answer you need isn’t going to answer your question more quickly.  He’ll answer it when he sees your question.
