Since we have loads of threads named: "Help" Quick question" and "Please Help!!!" I dug up this old thread Moonsh has once posted in sleuth talk. This words are words of wisdom. Please read them ;)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please be specific about your topic when you name posts, rather than say "a thought" or "a suggestion." It's nice to be able to get a sense of what the thread will be about without having to open it, and sometimes someone has a great suggestion, but it's hard to remember which "Another Suggestion" it is, so I open up several wrong threads before I find the discussion I am looking for.

Thanks!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The reason I think this is also important in newbie boards is so other players can find the same great answers you got! Others may have the same question, but will never find it if all the posts are named HELP or something similar.
So, please try to write what's your question is about in your topic.

Watching the amount of threads called Q or Qs makes me want to stick this one up again.

Yeah, I'm not that up to date on abreviations, and that is hard.

Summer, have a look at the Newbie FAQ, located for your convenience at the bottom of this page, and at the thread called 'Welcome Newbies'. There's loads of ooooie-gooey treats on those two. If your sleuth tooth is still itching after that, just make a thread called, like 'I need help with (whatever)'. Someone will be along fast like whoa.

Love always,
