"Help" is not good enough

When starting a new thread it does say, "Please ensure that your thread title accurately describes your subject"

Help is not good enough. I do not look at threads that say Help, or help required, or please help etc...

Please give us some sort of explanation of what sort of help you require.

I agree but the problem is that those who post theads entitled "Heelp!" probably won't read this.

Good point!!!

I thoroughly agree with you. I do not read any posts that do not contain a proper thread.

I just wish folks would tick their posts when sorted.I just looked in My Postings before and most of the page had unticked posts.

rev.bem has sort of hit it on the head, if someone wants help, why not give it..do we really give a whatsit if the heading is not right..

the graveyards are full of people who would love to help someone....................
