  • Please use a descriptive title

    Please use descriptive titles in your posts!

    When making threads, please try to make the title as clear as possible. Titles like "Please help", "I have a question" or "What can I do?" are not very helpful.

    Long and short of things are, please use the thread title to give a quick summary of the issue that is to be discussed.

    A descriptive title will help others if they are seeking similar information.

    Thank you!

      Please use descriptive keywords in the title of your post and avoid "generic" post titles like "Help" or "Question". There are 2 big reasons for this.

      1) The more descriptive the subject/title of your post, the better response you will receive from members via reply posts. Generic post titles are often overlooked because they don't give any indication about what the post is really all about. People browsing the forums don't have the time to click through and read each and every post, so help them out a little and it will help you too.

      2) Search engines use the titles of your posts as well when matching search results with keywords. So the more descriptive or accurate the title or subject of your post, the better chance someone will find it in their search engine results and possibly respond.
      I'm not a lawyer. The information I gave is based on certain research. Please review the information yourself to make an informed decision. Also, the information I posted may no longer be accurate.

            Also a balance between a 9 word post vs a 9 page one would be helpful!

            While knowing if there's a contract or a court order can be important, knowing your grandma takes her coffee black probably isn't.
