    That's weird! It's been changed on the original post, which is what I looked at before, but it was Even on the Index. I fixed it. For real.

    Hi! Can someone please correct the spelling of her first name from "Jaqueline" to "Jacqueline" in the thread title? It's missing a C before the Q. Sorry to be picky but that's my name too and seeing it misspelled keeps catching my eye.

    Request for thread title change please

    Hello Mods - I started a thread over on Everything Else titled Top Irish Catholic cleric......

    There seems to be an interest in a religious-type thread. We can continue using this thread if thats OK but thought maybe a name change to something more general would be appropriate. Whatever you guys think, possibly something like Religious/Faith Issues might work.

    Thank you!

    Left y'all a note in that thread. Have a look through that thread I pointed you to. See if it works for what you want.

    And we can move posts to that thread to keep from creating confusion while you all can continue the discussion in an appropriate thread. If that's what you want to do lemme know here, as I can take care of that easily for you.

    That would be really nice if you could move the posts or merge the threads, because there have already been some very good general type posts and I would hate for them to fall through the cracks or for people not to find the new thread.

    Do you think the new thread could renamed something like Slingshot suggested - "Faith/Religious Issues"? "What do you believe?" sounds very subjective and confrontational somehow (as do some of the existing posts there, nothing personal but that's how it seems), and that's not the approach we want to take. I'm afraid some people might be scared away. What I had in mind, and I think some of the others too, was something along the lines of Josephs Aviation Thread, but for religious faith matters. Have I muddied the idea completely now?

    No, you haven't.

    That (or any) thread is what people make of it. So if folks get/got confrontational and you don't want to go there, simply ignore that portion of the discussion and continue in a positive direction. You know...that old thing. Seriously though, that's how you'll be able to maintain what you want there.

    I'll be back to move that stuff for y'all in a bit. Got a couple of things in my RL to take care of first. I'll letcha know when it's done here.

    I didn't know where to post this, but I think you need to delete the thread titled "predict the death" in the Everything Else section. It's definitely spam!

    Just a reminder folks...

    Please use proper thread titles. They help cut down on people inadvertently posting duplicate threads and then us having to first research what a vaguely titled thread is really about and then merging the, duplicates, or other members doing the research and then reporting them to us, etc.

    Thanks!

    The fact that it was all over Sky News for the next fuckin' ten hours kinda helped too.

    Would you kindly remove the first word "Independent" from the title of my thread about the one-man sperm bank:

    http://www.findadeath.com/forum/show...ouble-with-FDA

    I also didn't know if this should be in Police Blotter or Everything Else since he could be charged with a crime but has yet to be. I trust your judgement, Mods. Thanks!

    Just a reminder as there's been some confusion of who goes where lately:

    Only dead folks should be posted in the Death Hag Central section.

    There's also no need to title threads with so and so dies. Or is DEAD. Even those who view threads via the New Posts feature are able to see from reading a thread's posts that so and so is indeed dead. It also shows which section a thread is in, in the right-hand column when viewing the forum that way, as is mentioned earlier in this thread.

    I'd like to add, Other Notable Figures are for the Figures who were famous before they died, not the other way around.

    If anyone is having trouble deciding what to post where, please refer to area descriptions. If a more in-depth explanation is needed, please have a look here: http://www.findadeath.com/forum/faq....#faq_organized


    As for proper thread titles, also remember that it cuts down on duplicates if the person, place or thing the thread is about is part of the thread's title. Such as "John F. Kennedy" as opposed to "OMG!!!!!! He's DEAD!!!!!!!!!!"

    Which brings up the whole thing with excessive punctuation. There's no need for excessive punctuation in thread titles. One exclamation point says it all!

    (See?)

    While "....." left dangling at the end of a partial title says nothing.

    "... " in thread titles is actually considered bad form on forums because it's like walking away in the middle of a sentence - the written equivalent of uhhhh and a cheap mechanism to pump up thread views. Yes, there actually are people on the internet who care more about how many views a thread they've posted gets, opposed to it's content or the actual conversation it creates.

    There's also no need to try to post the entire story's contents in a title. The 60 characters available to create a thread's title should be used to pique the reader's interest. Then, let your initial post do the talking. Such as:

    Not good: There was this dog and OMG it killed six people in West Virgi (cut off for a lack of bonus points *sigh*)

    Good: West Virginia pitbull kills six

    Even if the owner's name is not known or those details haven't been released yet, the second title is enough to let your fellow members know the details, which cuts down on duplicates. Writing details into a new post later in the the thread will cause it to come up in the search, which will help your fellow members find it later.

    I hope these tips for posting will help everyone quickly choose which topics they'd like to read/participate in and fewer pm's to us about inaccurate thread titles.


    Thanks for reading.
