Please use better SUBJECT lines Answered

It would be REALLY NICE if when people posted a question in the forums, they put some useful information in the subject line so that people who might answer the question would have a quick clue as to whether they can help. Here are some particularly bad recent examples:
  • Please tell me if this will work
  • I need some help on a project.
  • I need some help
  • Question?

And to be fair, here are some subject lines that were OK to excellent (I was only interested in half, but at least I could tell from the other subject lines that I wasn't interested!):
  • Help programming a 8 pin eeprom
  • Airsoft
  • Joule Thief Troubles
  • your favorite song?

Yes, Please. Normally, I don't even read the "I need help!" topics. If if the poster can't be specific, I can't be bothered.

I agree. It is sort of annoying clicking a "Help Me" thread to find out that it is how to build a K'NEX trigger.
