Default izzio456's Guide to making a thread title that actually makes sense 1/1/08

I don't make guides on how to do stuff... I make guides on how to make things better...

I see people always making their thread title something like, OMG!!, WOW!!, Look!, or This is cool!
That isn't the best idea.
So here are some tips to make a more reasonable thread title!

TIP 1... Don't feel obligated to make a thread title right away. If you need to, make the post, read it over, then name it.

TIP 2...OMG!, WOW, Look, ect. are not the answer. If you need to, do this in your head:
BAD: OMG!!
BAD: OMG!! LOOK-Really cool!
OK:OMG!! LOOK-Really cool! It has to do with ice cream!
BETTER: LOOK-Really cool! It has to do with ice cream!
BEST: This cool post has to do with ice cream!
The reason for this is so people are ready for what they are going to read. Sometimes it is annoying when every title is OMG!! Basically, you should add words, then take away OMG.

TIP 3... As I said in tip 2, OMG is not the answer. It is not necessery. When you are really excited, you have the right to put a whole bunch of OMGs in your post.

TIP 4... The title is different from the actual post. In other words, don't put the entire story in the post. Like when people have the title "I got a seal!!!" and the post is "So, what do you think?" To avoid this, have the title "I got a new webkinz! See what" Although in some ways it breaks tip 2, that is acceptable.

TIP 5... The title should have something to do with the post. So don't say it has to do with ice cream, when it has to do with banannas.

TIP 6... Try not to make your thread "Don't click here!" or "Something bad will happen if you click here!" That is just for attention. If you want people to come then try this: "This cool post has to do with ice cream! Can you please come?" That is nice, and honest.

TIP 7... If you ever happen to update a post, and wonder why no one noticed, then put the date you updated it. "This cool post has to do with ice cream! Updated 12/30"

TIP 8... A lot of people use "Just wondering" as their title. If you are wondering something, then here is the right thing to do: "Just wondering something about pie".

TIP 9... People say a title... followed with a milion ..................'s. Now that is annoying. When people say "Just wondering................................................" That is annoying. Reduce the ......................................... to a ... 3 dots are good.

If I can find anymore tips, then I will post it.
Remember, this was a friendly helper.

Great thread! So well organized! You've really hit on a few pet peeves of mine. (The "OMG" thread titles drive me bonkers!)
