But for an example

other ways. A style formats but count nothing.

The problem is that nobody knows how the people comes to issuezilla. 
Maybe a simple search at a search engine shows at first issuezilla. So 
you can provide informations where you want – the user will not get it.

So the simpliest way IMO is to ask the potential new subscriber
(a draft!)
– If you need help for using AOO?
Please got to
or look for a forum in your language at
– You have found a technical issue inside AOO?
Then please check these steps:
1. Have you a step-by-step description and a sample document to show the 
2. Have you discussed the issue at a user forum?
3. Can anybody at a userforum reproduce the problem?
[YES for all] – [NO]

Only if one clicks on [YES] he will be asked for the email address.
