Date: 2018feb28 Q. How can I make a useful bug report? A. Please provide the info up front. Programmers don't mind being told "something obvious" about your environment - eg I am using Windows. Every problem report should include:Title - I suggest something neutral here, rather than saying "bug" or "failure" use "issue", etc. Environment - Don't make the programmer ask or assume Steps to reproduce Expected Result - even if its obvious (eg should not crash) Actual Result Visual Proof (screenshots, videos, text) - include URL if relevantIf the program in question runs things (eg a web browser) its best to provide a *minimal* example of the html that causes the issue - not your whole website.
