Tips for Posting a "good" Forum Message

Because support via the MCNP Forum is provided on a "best-effort" basis, the following are tips that may help prompt answers and/or discussion on MCNP Forum questions.

If asking a question:

  • Provide a minimal example input file that motivates the question. Doing so will save those interested in responding from having to start of scratch and guess what you are trying to do. If asking how to do something, this is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate what you've tried (in an organized manner).
  • Identify the operating system, version of the MCNP code, and any special compilation and execution options you're using.
