Please use more descriptive titles

Just a reminder to everyone...

Try and use some more descriptive titles when you are making posts.

Right now there are the following titles-
"I need something new"
"need a answer"
"Help ASAP please"

Don't know if its just me, but when a little more description goes a long way.

Also, make sure to include enough information in the post about your truck so that people can help you.

In fact, I don't have enough time for the board. 9 out of 10 times I don't even read threads if I don't know what the title is referring to. If some folks wonder why I never come in their threads -- could be the answer, lol...

Pertinent titles will probably get more of the right kind of attention now and are definitely easier to search on later. A vague or cutesy title is of little interest so I usually don't bother opening the thread.

It doesn't even have to be long. There's one on here now "New DD" in the vehicle snapshots forum and that's totally obvious if you know DD is daily driver.

But titles like "Need Help", "Need answer ASAP" and so forth I don't open. The cutesy titles are a risk if you need help but they're fine if you're just playing around like one that might be "Hmmmm...I wonder what just came by UPS". If someone wants to go with the tease that's fine.

But many of us post to get answers and you'll get more answers on a busy board if folks can sort through the noise. A good title helps that.

My titles sometimes run LONG though...
