EVERYONE: PLEASE BE DESCRIPTIVE!!! (karma: 3)

Hi everyone,
I would just like to remind everyone that the title to your post should be descriptve! Things like: "help!" "woooh!""Hellooooo" "hey" are not descriptive, and there are many many topics like that here, and I personally have noticed that this is happening more than ever recently. I don't read all posts, and I think everyone uses the same system as me: reading what interests you. If I read "help" I think it might be about a broken ankle, so I would read it, and then it's about finding a teacher in Colorado. Of no interest to me and I can't help anyway. If it had been titled "need help finding a teacher in Colorado" the people who know anything about this would read it! And you will find the people who can help you better!
If this only happened occasionally, I wouldn't mind, but lately I spend a lot of my time opening topics I'm not interested in, and cannot answer anyway, and I have less time to answer those I want to answer.
There is a reason why it says over the title field: Please be descriptive!
I'm posting this on all the Irish boards and I hope all people read it and we have less of the "hey" posts.
No offense to anyone, it just makes life a lot easier if everyone makes that little effort.:)

I agree.

But Saoirse, maybe you should have contacted the Mods and told them your request... instead of posting on every single Irish board saying the same thing.

Lol, a sticky is a post that stays at the top of the board, so even if no one responds, it doesn't move down to the bottom.

true, but did you have to say it on every board?

Some people only read certain boards. As I said, silly me should have contacted the mods instead. It was well meant, sorry if anyone got annoyed by the repeated post.

Sorry if I sounded as if I was attacking you, Saoirse. You're right though not everyone reads every single board. And this is happening a loooot, it's getting a bit annoying.

Thanks for contacting the Mods. ;)

i couldn't agree with you more! even though i AM a newbie and ahev only posted one topic, it's all good 4 me! I think ou have a good point, for everyone to be descriptive. That way, when someone wants to reply, it gives them a minor break on what to give advice for.

Hi
I agree with you all. I think we should be more descriptive so that we can understand what the subject of the post is. Like Saoirse points out that some of the posts are a little misleading, but i'm sure after reading this people will understand how confused people are getting.

Amen, Saoirse. That rule does get ignored too often. I saw a topic title on here called "hiya, do you like...". What were we to understand by that? I had to get onto that topic title to see what the topic was about. Also, as if this hasn't been emphasized enough, please refrain from using the netspeak. I saw in one post here ppl (I think that must have meant "people"), and thanx (I think that must have meant "thanks"), and in another post I saw 4 (I think that must have meant "for"). No netspeak is another dance.net rule as well as to be descriptive in the topic titles that I see gets ignored too often.
