That makes the presumption that people (a) can read and (b) are teachable. Time and again we've found that to not be the case.

And no, vvg125, we haven't given up. We still lock/trash threads regularly that don't past muster. However, it's mostly limited to the Support board.

I was referring to the suggestion board specifically but... fair enough.

Just an FYI.

I have been adding "<- CHANGE ME QUICK" to the topic titles. This is now the warning. If I see activity going on in the thread and the title still hasn't been changed after at least a day, I will lock it with a link to this thread. Your topic title should say something of what you are looking for so we know what it is about before we open the topic. This is the only warning you will get from me.

Just lock it and put link of this thread in it.

If u keep warning them they keep doing it and get their answer within the day and keeps doing the same mistake, ya digg?

So lock and put thread link? i think its much easier.
And if they keep doing bad topic names, You know the rest of what u can do :]

I think I will change the topic title to something humiliating (depends on how often they have done it) and if they reply back without changing it, it gets locked. Simple enough

When I first saw the "<- CHANGE ME QUICK", I thought it was the user posting it into his title.
Something like "IVE GOT THIS 1337 PLUGIN BUT NOT WORKING <- CHANGE PLUGIN QUICK!!1".

unfortunetly....it seems that these days, it starts getting out of hand....on the first page of Suggestions / Requests i only see two ( 2 ) topics that respect the rules....perhaps you should state somewhere that requests are prefixed by [REQ] and suggestions by [SUGG]

The thing is that we do not require those types of prefixes. Personally, I would rather not see them, but the topic starter can do whatever he wants as long as it is descriptive
