    Default Topic titles need to inform what your topic is actually about

    The worst topic titles are things like-

    1. Please Help !
    2. Hey everybody, look at this !

    But even more specific titles like-

    1. Need info on D31
    2. G53

    Are meaningless or nearly so to many, so will be locked as meaningless. My theories on the reasons for meaningless titles are-

    1. The "surprise" aspect... open the package to find out
    2. Laziness
    3. Shyness (newbies are especially prone to meaningless topic titles)

    Bottom line is we need members to simply tell us in advance enough info to at least get a hint of what the topic is about.

    This for two reasons-

    1. Many of us are in a hurry and don't have time to open posts we then find out are of no interest

    2. Search engines concentrate on topic titles more so than content, so with proper title your topic is more likely to be found by others with similar issues later.
