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

Crash I know that we have a lot of new members sense this post last floated to the top. Please remember to keep titles descriptive to the subject. The Google search engine works much better to bring people to your threads if they contain a good descriptive phrase.

Please don't use phrases like ----
WTH
***
OMG
Look at this
This is gay
That is gay

You guys know what I mean

Thanks

Also please remember, when creating a thread in the for Sale section start the thread title with "Wanted: ", "For Sale: " or "Trade:".
sounds good.

thanks admin and fillpot...
If you find a thread with a non-descriptive title, please do your part by PMing the member reminding them of the rule and requesting for them to change it and PM a mod informing of the thread so that we can change it if the member does not.
