Today, I was looking over at the related questions module on a recent question, and it looked like this:
It would be nice if we could tell questions apart simply by looking at their titles. But seven out of ten of the related questions above have non-descriptive titles:
I can't tell any of these apart. If I were searching for one in particular, I'd have to click one after another just to find the question I'm looking for.
So please, use specific titles. Don't just write "Is this grammatically correct?" If you're not sure what to add, put the relevant part of the sentence in the title. And if you can't figure out what's relevant, try putting the whole thing in—a specific title that's too long is better than a short, generic one.
Besides, if you can't figure out what you're specifically asking about, odds are you're asking an off-topic proofreading question. If you can identify a specific area of concern, you can make your title specific, too. So please, do so!
