As part of an effort to make the forum more useful we will now be asking members not to use generic thread titles like "help me now" or "noob question here" when posting a new thread.

For the first phase of enforcing this, we will simply remind users to be more descript in their titles.

For the second phase of this, any new post without a descriptive title will be deleted.

This change should have a positive impact on us all.

Help by the membership to remind members about this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
admin

What about in the off topic forum, we can't use ***** as a title?

Thank you ADMIN and PHilwn, I hoope this one sticks... It does get bothersome when your wanting to help but you see the Another noob Title and your like should i look.. So may times its questions about specific hardware. which not all of us have..

IF they had a problem with there ATI 9600
the thread title could be as simple as
9600 video problem...

Good call admin... that should help people find help related to specifics topics.

Are you going to do something about the hundreds of already posted Noob here posts??
