to support the community i've pitched in my efforts instead to help out with this other unofficial fan created support alternative. Fyi i mostly help with the little issues since i'm a bit experienced with QTS end-user interface, but for much more technical issues you are always better off asking helpdesk or someone way more experienced than me
There were already a few other places for support available which i am unaffiliated with (although i do visit from time to time), i'll just mention a few
Bottom-line is, this thread will no longer be maintained until said otherwise. Some info MAY still be relevant, but lots can easily get out dated (like the yearly buyers guide recommendations). If you still want to use as a simple reference, feel free to do so, but please keep that in mind, thanks
About this Megathread
I'm just compiling all useful QNAP help guides or anything of use here so i can refer other users to help with their issues If anyone wants to share their own FAQ articles/tips, feel free to do so and i can add it to an existing article for further enhancement or as a new article link of it's own. This is merely a casual way for me or others wanting to share tips/tricks or other FAQs to assist others searching for an answer.
whats new in V2
In V2 we improved the layout to be cleaner (new banner by me), also added a ton of reserved posts for future expansion. Biggest improvement is relocating most of the core parts of the megathread to page1 & page2 for better visibility and ease of use. A simplified listing (nicknamed the clean edition) is in beta, as a lighter version of changelog (which may look more messy as it mixes newly added/updated/edited which results in duplicate titled articles at times)
How to navigate/use this megathread
Is chatting/asking questions allowed?-Use ctrl+f and type in short keyword, to navigate the FAQ easier. Scrolling down takes a bit longer to find what you are looking for. Also recommended to use Chrome or Firefox-Use mouse scroll + ctrl to adjust browser window to a comfortable size for easy reading (browser specific: may not work with your browser)Find articles either using the Changelog post on page2 using ctrl+f(recommended), or the Forum thread search.You can alternatively use the simplified listings to find an article quickly, however i'm not actively maintaining that list compared to the changelog listing.Polling is provided for viewers to assess if this megathread has helped them or not. If too many dislikes, probably means i need to edit this more to be up to standard Feel free to change your vote any time.megathread sitemap

How to contact meYes feel free to ask or chat away. Got your own tidbit to share? feel free to do so, no problem. However if you expect faster replies to your issues, i strongly recommend creating your own threads to ask your questions.megathread
A topic on an internet chat board that has an excessively large number of responses to the original post.
