Well, post a screen shot, then. Generally they don't tell much, though - a playable prerelease or some video footage gives a lot of more insight into the game.
If you mean how, you can take a screenshot of your desktop by pressing your "Print Screen" keyboard button, or of the active window via "Alt + Print Screen". Under Linux this should create an image file in your pictures folder, under Windows it'll copy that image in your clipboard and you can open Paint and Ctrl+V it in, then save the image. You can then upload the image to any free image hosting service on the internet, like imgur or tinypic, copy the direct link and post it on the forum between [img] tags (there's button on the editor to help do that).
