Yup, if you make your title appealing, MORE people would come to your thread and you would get more posts! Like, for example if you got a CHEEKY DOG off eBay (EXAMPLE) and your title was....

CLICK!!!! PLEASE!!

You probably won't get lots of views or posts, because people wouldn't be interested, because of the non-appealing title.
Now if you put...

Woof woof..It's a NEW CHEEKY DOG! Pics included!

People are going to be interested!

The title is EVERYTHING!

You can do that, but still sometimes it doesn't work right

I don't even read threads like that any more. I've seen it used too many times as a ploy when the thread lacks substance. Rarely have I clicked on a thread, which has a teaser for a title, and there was something there worth reading. Those exceptions are few and far between. Someone could have something meaningful to say but miss-out on their voices being heard because of the title.

Default Re: Please don't make your title......

I completely agree. I browse through the forum deciding which threads to read by mousing over the titles and deciding whether they interest me. Mostly I skip threads whose titles do not let me know what the content is. And the few times that I do click on them, I am often annoyed at wasting my time on a thread that has no interest to me! Thanks for this suggestion!

Thanks for the advice. I agree that is a very irritating to not know what you are about to read, then have it be a disappointment if it is not something that you were interested in.

Default Re: Please don't make your title......

I agree.

Here are some reasons why;;

Well 'Guess What??' like you said, isn't specific and some people may feel they wasted their time. 'Guess What??' isn't relevant to what's in your thread. Which basically means, it's not what's on the inside.
Like, you don't read a book that has Hannah Montana on it and it's about High School Musical. It just doesn't work that way. Try to let people know what's in your thread.

And the other one, it still tells what's in the thread. So, for me, it's not really that bad. Like, maybe you could do this;;

Thread Title: Which do you like better: pancakes or waffles?

Inside Thread:

I personally love pancakes, but waffles are good too. What do you think?

*reality*

So you really don't need to put paragraphs of writing saying, what you like better. That will most likely bore some people. (No Offense!!!) You just have to put a sentance or two. Unless you are describing something. Like which fish do you like better??

And do short bios on those fish in the choices. Do you get what i'm saying? lolzzzz.

Thanks!
