Hi everybody,

i'm new to this forum, so let me quickly introduce myself:
I'm 22, german, new to WINE and PlayOnLinux, not so new to Linux, and my name is Paul.
Let me say a big THANK YOU to eveybody working on this amazing piece of software! It makes things so much easier and can help a lot with the transition to Linux. Its so cool playing my games on linux, although with some I still got some frustration. But let me repeat it: Thank you very much.

I would like to contribute some little things, for example how i got some unsupported games to work or some issues with other games. My big problem is that i am unable to understand the structure of the forum, so i don't know where to post it.
For example i installed Warlords Battlecry 2, which is not supported as far as i know. So i did a manual installation. Am i expected to post this in "Manual Installation" section (I don't feel like a hacker, more like a user), in "Play on Linux" or in "Application Test"? Sorry for the noob question, i tried to figure it out, but without success...

Thanks for some hints and for the great work, keep it up!
Greeting, Santa

Hi Paul,
"Application tests" is for feedback about existing installers, so the right place for manual instructions to install unsupported softwares in "Manual installations"; And "Your creations" is for scripts to automate the installation of unsupported softwares.
