    Please, Please put a real and complete subject in the Title so I will know if it is a question I can answer or am interested in reading about.
    A quilter's time is precious and I rather not take the time to search through to find what the subject is about.

    I agree with your request, but you did not do what you ask in the title to your post.

    Perhaps: Post titles need descriptive key words!

    This also helps those trying to find posts at a later date.

    I have asked for more discriptive titles also but to no avail.
    It was really bad when I only had dial up.
    Now I mostly ignore incomplete posts.

    Donna Jean: You are correct. I should have made it more descriptive myself. Your suggestions is much better:

    Post titles need descriptive key words!

    And that would then sure solve the problem of trying to find previous subjects which were discussed in length.

    I agree!!!!!!!! Especially if I want to do a search on topic before I post. Actually I tend to ignore post that do not have descriptive title. Good luck trying to get all to comply!

    Yep, in a perfect world, folks would read and follow the posting instructions, use the search function first, put their posts in the correct topic area, use a descriptive title, and WOULD NOT SHOUT.
    But we don't live in a perfect world. I just skip the vague topics.

    yup-just like your topic title- is it a question or a comment- hey- guess everyone can check to see---do any of us have an answer to "a real subject?"

    I agree 100%. I skip over alot of topics with no description. Ever since joing this board I have always put what I'm looking for in the title. I want your attention. :thumbup:

    Maybe incomplete titled posts should be deleted and a note sent to the poster to repost with correct information...

    We only delete topics for good reasons.

    This horse has been beaten many times over.

    Let the poor thing rest in peace.
