I hate it when people name their threads things like "just got a mini need help" or "help pls!!!!!". Why can't people just give their thread something easy to understand and informative, like "I need help with bluetooth"? I think that it's much more helpful to potential answerers if they know what the thread is about, so that they will know whether they can help or not.

Ah... the life of forums

If you look closely, you will see that the more informed and seasoned members actually do name their threads with meaningful titles. It is usually the n00bs who come along and do those sorts of things.

But hey, might as well help them out and they will soon become aware of this sort of stuff!

As the most translated academic author of the US used to write: "Everyone starts at square one."

Just think of them as kids learning the rules. (And if that doesn't help, remember one of your own faux pas.)
