I know this is the Pit, and I know nobody gives two hoots here, but sometimes things can get a little frustrating. I see probably a dozen or two threads a day that just say "Help" or "N33d H37P N0\/\/!" or some other vague reference to needing help with something.

Now, generally, I go to these right away, and if I can answer them, I do, but I'd say a third of the time, it's something I just don't know enough about (FX loops, tube amps... whatever). But anyway, basically what I'm asking people to do is think about how you title your thread. It takes maybe an extra second or two to write "Help: FX Loops" instead of "need help..." or some other vague title. Generally if you put a little bit of thought into your title, you'll get a lot more response. A lot of people see "help me" threads constantly in here, and just ignore them. In fact, if you search "help me" nothing even comes up, because the search engine doesn't even consider help or me specific enough. So, if you are searching the forums for a simple issue that somebody's already posted about, you wont even necessarily find it. However, if you say "Need help: Delay Pedals" or something similar to that, anybody who's interested in pedals, or happens to know something about delays particularly will probably take a quick look, and other people will find the thread later when they have the same issue.

Not only is it easier for those of us who like to help other people with issues when reading the forums, but you'll probably get more input too, so it's really a good idea for everyone to title your threads more appropriately.

I'm not saying you have to do any of this, but it's just a suggestion for making this place a little nicer to be around.

Thats what the hover over is for.

Nights alone by your side

You make me feel
Like a dog, you can see, my emotions
Is this for real, i'm a man
Sinking deep, in the ocean

True that, it really gets annoying
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

This helps, but for all the time it takes to do it right, it's much more clear, and again, the search bar issues comes up (I edited that in, so you may not have read it).

Twas just an example. "help me" threads aren't always in the Pit I guess.
who died and made you a mod? this isn't your place buddy.
It's just my opinion on how things could be better laid out in the forums. I'm not saying you have to listen to me...

Go to Site Suggestions and propose it as a new rule then. Nobody in the Pit will listen to you.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Well, I can realistically see it being enforced as a full-fledged rule, so I didn't bother.

If say 10 people read this and change, I'll be happy even if I get flamed a dozen times for it.

I agree with you there are so many ambiguous threads kicking about it's untrue. To a certain extent I agree with Fronk about the hover but some of the things are just stupid. I remember on guy put "Ozzy's dead" so I naturally clicked then read "K sorry bout that but I need some help with......" now needless to say he got flamed but even so it's so damn annoying.
