Thread Titles when posting on EF

Dear EF members

Due to the large number of new threads being created daily, I would like to ask you all please to take some time to think about your thread titles. As you know, this is the first thing you see when you are searching/trawling through EF. Ask yourselves: how often have you clicked on a thread simply to figure out what the heck its about or been disappointed as you thought it was something more relevant to you?

To help keep EF user friendly and easier to search/navigate, I ask you please to just think about the following for your thread title:

What is the core question/topic? - Try to be specific and clear

Is my location or the location of the event etc relevant?

Am I asking for help? - in which case phrase the title in such a manner as to make it clear what you want help with.

I think one of the best, or easiest ways to do this is to stick a question mark on the end of the title.

This can help the read understand whether the thread is a request for help or an answer, or instead, perhaps a monologue by the OP.

Re: Thread Titles when posting on EF

A bump for this thread as there have been many vaguely worded titles recently. Please see Lynn's post above.

Thank you, dear Members, in helping Mods keep the housekeeping to a minimum.
