Things Not To Put In A Topic Title

Post by Songdog » Wed Jul 16, 2008 4:49 pm

This is (hopefully) not like the Etiquette guide, which is more directed at behavior.

-Don't put weird symbols in the topic title to make it look fancy: ....~~\|/Whoot\|/~~....
-Putting "Plz Read!" in your topic title is annoying
-Don't make a title that says "Please Read" (hypocritically I did this once when I really had no other idea for a topic name)
-CAPS LOCK OF DOOM
- Putting "Very Important!" as the title is not helpful
-Spelling things incorrectly is a no no(honestly, it's the topic title, the one thing you want to spell check)
-A topic titled as "Question" is incredibly unspecific
-Chatspeak in a title=fail
-Make sure your title is relevant to the topic
-Don't post leaving or quitting topics

...anyway. What do you guys think? Do you have any more thoughts on this?

I cant think of any more right now, I think you pretty much covered it all but if I come up with something Ill be sure to post. :)

I think this should be stickied like the Etiquette Guide.

heres a few

"this is probably a bad question but..."
incredibly unspecific

having the title so long that it doesnt fit such as

"blah blah blah wuestion about this and wolfque"
~~Will you swear on your life, That no one will cry at my funeral?~~

Before I knew it I was running
You were pulling my hand
Yesterday is long past; Tomorrow is just ahead

You forgot to say that using the title "HELP!!!oneoneeleven11!" is never appreciated, even without the numbers <.<

And yes, I vote for a sticky. Once again.

Sticky? Alright >> -stickied- If another mod doesn't want this stickied then, er, unsticky it? (can you unsticky something?)

Is funny whenever I see topics with those titles. They pop up and I think "Some one didn't read the memo. o.o "

Oh I thought of one to add, topics with every other letter capitalized or just random letters capitalized. "pAy AtTeNtIoN tO mY tOpIc" Its very annoying, like the random symbols. Ive never seen a topic like that but I have seen pack names like that so it would only be a matter of time before someone tried to make a topic title that way. (Good question, can something be unstickied? :lol: )

Thanks for posting this. I'm guilty of a few things on there. ^^" I don't put much thought into the title of a thread, just the content of the post.
