    How annoying is this?....

    PLEASE USE A DESCRIPTIVE TITLE, if you want people to click on your thread.

    Thanks,

    Film photography? This term kills me. As if there's another kind!

    For some reason, there's been a spate of them.

    Well, "how annoying is this" got me to click on it much better than "use a descriptive title" would have.

    I wouldn't have looked at it, except that I saw Dave was the author.

    posts in the classified section that do not have a prefix of FS/FT etc should be deleted or otherwise made to conform to the rules. Nothing more annoying then a huge new post list with so many misleading titles.... PLEASE....
    Interestingly enough i have just posted the exact same complaint in LFPF....

    I totally agree about FS/FT/WTB, and at some point we added it to the instructions, but most people don't really read them when they post. It seems like there should be a way of automating that, since we have separate forums for each of those, but maybe it would require additional coding.

    David,
    You are so right. I've taken to hovering over a title to read the first para of the post so that I can get a feel for the intent of the post... as the titles are mostly useless. The title of this thread, although it appears to be an example of uselessness at first glance, actually does capture the intent of the thread. I clicked on it (mostly because I trust your posts and titles), and was not disappointed.

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

    Folks, please use a descriptive title.
