Descriptive Thread Titles in Absolute Beginner Talk
I know this will be placed into Recurring Discussions.
This is (one of many) posts made in a thread that does not use a descriptive thread title in Absolute Beginner Talk:
And yet this thread (like every other non descriptive thread) now has multiple pages filled with answers. Thread titles that are descriptive (as per forum policy) often seem to be ignored.

Why should anyone use a descriptive thread title other than "HELP ME!!!" or "I messed up!" when their threads get answered with more gusto than "No sound after suspend/hibernation" or "Kernel update - broken networking."?
I agree with hyper_ch (and a few others) posting this kind of information, but it does not solve the problem at all. People who are answered in these types of threads will continue to use non-descriptive titles because they get their answers.
This is a signature. It is original.
