Default Hmmm, Argh!!!, HELP, Oh Crap, What the?

As a gearhead and fellow BC'r, there seems to be an increase in these types of thread titles.

Being newer, I too posted my emotion as the title. Other times, one may not know what the title should be.

I've found that future searches for good threads is much harder when the title doesn't reflect the topic that the post is about.

Please take a moment and take this suggestion into consideration. Try to title your posts as well as possible from the start to attract the attention of the people with experience for that problem or issue. If afterward the title doesn't fit the direction things have flowed...change it to reflect what a person may search in the future.

Newbies, veterans, and all in between can benefit from this....let'* keep BC clean and helpful for all.

I second the concept.

Fact not mentioned, you'll probably get more reads if you specify the issue you are having, than hoping everyone will check just out of curiosity...

I may add... spell checking and proof reading your posts before pressing submit should probably be right up on top as well.

Jim, While I agree...I disagree... if the post has taken a complete 180 or even a partial turn and the diagnosis/solution would be different.. changing it works out for the better.

If I thought I had a cluster problem and it turned out to be a water leak. I would want to change the focus from electrical problem to sealing and finding leaks.

Sometimes a title change is appropriate, sometimes it ain't. Just randomly changing the title, for no apparent reason, falls into the ain't category.
