DONT JUST USE THE WORD "HELP!" IN YOUR TOPIC TITLE!

Postby Leo_V117 » April 10th, 2010, 12:06 pm

Here's a rule. Whenever you come to posting whatever you're gonna post about, don't title it as "Help Please!" or "Help!". Get straight to the point of your post. Just putting "Help!" as a title doesn't hint to anyone what the post is about. I know the post itself will, but it's preferred if you title it as something useful, like "I can't script the RPG", or, "An error message shows every time I run the config". That way we can help you.

Take this into account when posting as it will help us to help you.

Thanks.
- Leo

Yeah, it really annoys me when I see "HELP!" in the support section.

As an FYI, this is already a board rule.

rules.php#rule1c

It's getting bad enough with people disregarding it, so it may be enforced in the near future with topic locks on support requests that do not obey this rule.

You might want to leave a message some where when you start a new post / thread.

Hey leo...instead of titling this thread "READ THIS BEFORE POSTING!!!!"

why not title it "DON'T JUST WRITE "HELP" FOR YOUR THREAD TITLE"
Tombstone's Tournament round 2 has begun! Tombstone's Posting Tournament

Try out my: CFG Easy Text Editor (Note: still in beta)
