Could we........?

Please be sure to at least be a little descriptive in the titles of threads. Nothing irritates me more than scrolling and seeing posts titles "Help Me", "need Help", "Look", "Question" and other totally nondescriptive titles. You never know if the information that people post will be really valuable to other people, after all, posts tend to change directions quite a bit. And trying to track down a relevant post with an obscure title is a daunting task. Lets try to be a little more descriptive, or don't, I have no say on it only an opinion .

This is not directed at anyone in particular.

Couldn't agree more. It's virtually impossible to track anything down if they are in the archives, and it doesn't give any clue about the post itself... titles are called "topics" for a reason

Great Idea! I myself usually ignore posts that I can't tell what they are about from the title. Also, it's a pet peeve of mine and no offense to anyone but I don't think we need to post a new thread when we get a new star.

AMEN!!!! It really has no bearing on anything. IT is in no way a sign of knowledge or experience, it just means you are active.

I never understood that either. The whole star thing. I never have gotten it and even on other sites people are always talking about their star level and what not. I have no clue what it even matters. I also agree and I will be making a better effort myself to make topics/subjects a bit more informative to the true topic.
