It is important to post in the right forum, I think we all get that. What is irritating me lately are all of the posts with a title that has nothing to do with the question or content of the post.

You'd think it would be common sense, and I don't want to call anyone out specifically, but please! Do not name a thread that is about your next recipe "hot lhbs cashier!" (just a made up example)

With so many people posting, it sucks to go into a post that you think you want to read only to find out that it is about something completely unrelated.

Thanks!:mug:

That happened to me just now! I'm so pissed.

Maybe you should retitle this thread "Title Your Threads Appropriately" or "Use Descriptive Thread Titles"

:cross::D

Put your mouse pointer over the thread link, but don't click. A little box will pop up with the first few words in the thread...giving you a preview...

I do the mouseover trick but it still doesn't excuse poor thread titling skills. Sometimes the first paragraph is a bunch of off topic background info.

That is Funny Beerthoven!

And yes the mouse over is a must, but when it just shows a huge paragraph, or it is misleading also.

BTW, I just posted a thread where I want you guys to critique my upcoming recipe. I called it "Baseball Joke".

You can also click on the
sign in the post and report what is wrong with the post and the Mods can remedy the situation by putting it in the proper section.

I reserve that poster report button for spam and horrible tubgirl-esque stuff. I guess I could use it more...

But will they change a mis-leading title?

That's YOU that's reporting all the spam?????

Just kidding. Certainly let one of us know the issue- just send one of us a PM and we can even gently let the the poster know what we did and why. If this is a specific individual time after time, let us know so we can deal with it.

Anytime you see an inappropriate post, or have an issue with anything at all, let one of us know. We'll be glad to take care of it.

I'm sorry! so this wasn't about posting new threads? What, does your mouse over not work?

I guess some folks feel the need to create a catchy post title to get people to read and respond.

We all know that everyone here is referring to (and dissapointed in) the "How Can I Get More Head" thread.

I still click on it several times a day...just on the off chance... ;)

Lol, let's jack that thread. I will ignore all previous posts and give a casual piece of advice on how to get more oral sex. You then reply in kind, Sound good?
