    "Sad News," "This is awesome!" and "Quandary" are all thread titles that appeared on APUG today.

    Folks, please use a descriptive title.

    Due to a poorly descriptive title I ended up in a quandary because of the sad news of my missing an awesome thread...

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    Hey, wait a minute. Six hundred and seventeen individual camera plans? I thought it was all about a single plan to make a 6x17 format camera??

    A DESCRIPTIVE TITLE

    There. I followed David's instructions to the letter.

    Seriously though, descriptive titles are very helpful. Few things are more irritating when trying to figure out what to read and what to skip than having bad metadata (data about data). And a title is in fact metadata.

    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    It might be helpful if the person who started a thread was able to edit the title. More than once I've had second thoughts about the title I put on a thread.

    I think the title should be editable within the post editing time frame. I'm not sure how long Sean has set that at.

    I think that one is allowed to edit the title in the advanced edit mode.
