There are often postings by new users in the style of:
"Hey, my $foo dosen't work. I tried to fix it, but it's still broken. Any ideas how to fix it?"
It would often be really helpful to have some log output. Sometimes the user is not experienced enough to find the correct files, messages, but what every user can include are the steps he tried before posting to solve the problem.
Would it make sense, and would it be possible, to display a short reminder before the first posting is done, to include such information? It shouldn't be really big or annoying, just 2-3 lines like "Did you include $foo?".
I know its already written in the FAQ but we know how often new users read it.
What do you think?
