How to Name Posts

Hello Sleuthers!

Since we have loads of threads named: "Help" Quick question" and "Please Help!!!" I thought it would be a good idea to make a post regarding the naming of posts that you need help with or answers to.

Please be specific about your topic when you name posts, rather than say "a thought" or "a suggestion." Try naming your post "Negotiation, or "Intimidation Questions". It's important to be specific when naming your posts because it will help other players that have the same questions as you do, find their answers easier if they name of the posts are specific. It would save them a lot of time making the same repeated posts over and over and the same lot of people having to make the same reply over and over to each new post that says the same thing.

If all of the posts are named "help" or "stuck" or very general or vague, it will be a lot more confusing to find the answers that are needed for others. So please try and be specific about your post and and title. Also while I'm at it, please only post your question in one forum. Your questions will get answered very quickly so there is no need to post it more than once.

Thanks,
Happy Sleuthing!!

Um, thanks Moonsh via cfm originally. And thanks Jas, we were going to get around to this type of instruction at some point. You beat us to it!

Hey Jas, don't you get the feeling that you'll be playing this tune again and again and again...as the games popularity spreads? Poor girl, your fingers are going to get all bruised and calloused.

LOL Sunny, I tweaked Moonsh's post and re-worded it, and added a few of my own things in there ;)


Yup, Paula, I'm prepared, got lots of lotion for them callouses :D

Is there a reason there is no search option on the forum?

Most forums have a search option to help lower the amount of posts, although naming your posts like you suggested would help with the search also.

Just another thing to add to Jas's post. Please when writing a new post at least check the first couple of pages before you make it. Several times just recently there's been two or three posts about the same subject and even the exact same question on the first page. You'll probably find a much more in depth answer if you do just a tiny amount of research :)

[I think Sleuth Talk and Newbies look mighty similar... perhaps someone could spork them into shape for us.]
