Use Descriptive Thread Titles

Please, it makes it easier for those of us that do use the search tool to find information if thread titles are descriptive and use proper spelling.

Examples:
?
Question
HELP!!!!
quick question
Need Serious Help!
i used the search bar this time i swear!!!
noooobbbbbbbbb!!!!
need some help???
ok...
Look!!!
check it out.

95% of the time this isn't an issue, but it can only help you, and people after you that have the same issue if you use proper titles as opposed to ones like the above. I don't really care if you use these types of titles in the lounge and what not, but if you are looking for technical advice it is very helpful to have descriptive thread titles.

For those that don't know, you can search threads by thread title, usually this makes it 10x easier to find information because you know what the thread is about before you even go into it. (how to search by thread title)

So would a title like " My Wiener Is Red" be descriptive enough for you?

... I'm surprised that this wasn't enforced a long time ago.
Junk titles not only frustrate some people, but they make the forum look like SPAM!

Just remember, people are more likely to read your thread if they know what it's about.

i completely agree...its so frustrating to see that type of stuff.

IF YOU WANT HELP WITH SOMETHING, MAKE IT CLEAR WHAT THE PROBLEM IS IN THE TITLE.

...it makes people more prone to opening your thread and helping u...if they know how to help...

Best advice ever. Most of the time (9/10) if I come across a thread that doesn't have a descriptive title I will not click it out of pure spite. Plus it doesn't help when someone is searching for info on a topic that may have been previously discussed.

jk reign, great thread BTW. and so true.

i can't tell you how many time's i've searched for a topic, only to not find it because the titles have nothing to do with the actual thread. then i have to go through 20 pages of threads to find what i'm looking for.

OK... this is pissing me off.
People... please use either descriptive titles or at least state a good description in your post.

You all complain about people re-posting... well... part of the problem is when people don't put a good description for others to search for.

And FYI... the search tool DOES NOT search the text in a link...



Now... an example from the past few days....
Holy Badass!!
Think you have driving skills?

Holy STi!!!
