Thread: be specific in title so one can find the topic again if/when doing a search

    When giving an ad (or any topic, for that matter) a title, please be specific and/or descriptive.

    For example: I came across a green calico that someone had wanted in November or December - and I can't find the ad again because it said something like "fabric wanted" or "please 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!

    very good advice. When it just says ISO or something similar it would be hard to go back and find that posting again

    I agree, and I will try my best to do the same so it makes searching a lot easier for our members. Thanks for the reminder.
