If you're having problems with something, please provide us with your computer make and model and as much information about the wireless card as possible.

it is also adviced to use a descriptive topic title, that means a topic title that gives some clue about the content in the thread itself...

a generic topic title like "noob here" or "need help" does not help at all. As you may have notices, just about everyone posting in here has some kind of a problem or issue or question ;)

Since when? There was not too long ago a thread in the forums section still holding up that you can't change the title...

Uh, I don't know. I just know that I clicked that once and found that I could change it, since I had a rather bad title. It was in the last month sometime, but that's about all I know.

EDIT: ah, it was this one (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=773550). You can tell 'cause the reply underneath has a different title...

It did, though not in the list here (http://ubuntuforums.org/search.php?searchid=41381426). At least, I'm pretty sure it did.

EDIT: Hmm, perhaps not (http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=329&order=desc&page=43). That ruins the usefulness.

that's what I remembered from the old version also... you could edit the title but it will only be reflected when you look at the thread but not in the thread listing or search :(
