    Just this morning I tried to find an ad that I had been interested in but couldn't find it because the title was too generic. Being specific will be lots of help.

    If the ad had said something like "green floral calico wanted" - I might have been able to find the ad again.

    Sometimes one finds what was being looked for days, weeks, or months later - and one would love to be able to tell the original poster "I found it!" - if only one could find the ad again!

    You are so right on! I will never understand why people name topics in such ways. It doesn't help them or us. It makes the wonderful search feature a nightmare. It takes such little time to correctly name your topic. Oddly enough it's not just the newer members that do this but also ones that have been here a very long time. Those please help topics especially with specific sewing machines would bring all the members that had that specific machine in droves to help. I think at this point many people just bypass those types of topics as a waste of their precious time. We are all here to help whenever we can but please people be specific and I imagine you'd find a lot more responses to your questions. :-D

    I think you should re-post this every day for a week...morning, noon and night!!! That way, everyone ''should'' get a chance to see/read it....JMO
