View Full Version : Post titles need to be better...

just a rant...

many many many of the post have great descriptive titles; i often look through the new posts and help where i can, i post a fair bit too, i am also new to this game we call ubuntu...

but i often see post with titles like:

"somethings wrong"
"horrible problem"
"what happened"
"broken Ubuntu"
"machine doesn't boot"

if you really want help; please, please, please put a more descriptive titles. It is more likely to catch somebody's eye, and may get your problem or question answered more quickly.

thanks for the soapbox.

my opinion is that if they don't know how to make a well-formulated post, then they can't expect to be getting help. there are many things that could be done to make a support forum more efficient, but realistically they will never be implemented.

That's the truth :)

I've been retitling some threads in order to get people better help.

Unfortunately, you're preaching to the choir. People using vague titles won't be reading this thread.
