I completely and utterly agree. Also, people shouldn't make their titles really long and complicated, for example: "I need help so that I can figure out how to make the background transparent in Adobe Photoshop cs3 because I need to know this to make my avatar! Does anybody know how?"

A better title for that would be "Photoshop cs3 Help" or "Transparent backgrounds on Photoshop?"

Thanks for bringing this to over 1,000 people's attentions! I see threads all the time especially in the Rumor Mill and the Somebody Help saying "OMG" "What on Earth?" "Why?!" "HELP!" "What's going on on?" I think people should be more descriptive. Instead of: "HELP ME PLEASE!" They should say, "Pets are stuck in a room, Help Please!" And people shouldn't do CAPS LOCK for every character, because that can be percieved as screaming.

That's a great point...when people have just 'HELP!!!!!!' for a title, it makes us wonder if we can be of assistance or not? I do try to mouse over the title often, but sometimes, the title is just repeated. If I can get an overview of the thread, then I try to decide from that, but what can be done if not? I guess we'll just have to be risky and visit the thread... Thanks for coming by, HappySsey!

No problem Lolo! I'm glad to help! I used to click on them all of the time, but lately, I just ignore them because I get annoyed if it's not something I'd care to respond to. Thank you for coming by!

Yeah, I agree that that's probably the reason too. Some members just need to trust that people will be interested enough in their clear titles to come and read more. Thanks for coming by SummerLovin'!

LOL, thank you so much for the example! I loved it! I agree that some titles can be too long, but too short isn't good either. There is a such thing as too detailed...underdetailed...we just need to find a balance in the middle. Thank you for coming by AlohaWebkinz!

No problem! I'm so glad that I've reached over 1,000 WI members with just this one thread! Thank you for being one of them, Meg! You are absolutely right that using CAPS LOCK could be mis-interpreted as shouting. Thank you so much for giving examples for better title selections! I appreciate your post!
