Topic headings. Be specific about what it is about.

Post by Sport » November 22, 2018, 3:48 pm

I do know a bit about what to put into the SUBJECT for a topic/article. The tabloids do this to grab a readers attention, and that reader knows exactly by looking at the SUBJECT or headline what the article/topic contains so they can bypass or read it, without going down the page to find out what the article is about.

I have read both forums, UM/UT and whilst some of the topics are great reading, perhaps the OP could be a bit more specific on their SUBJECT heading. A few times I checked out the topic by way of an ambiguous heading and realised it was nothing I was interested in.

This is only a suggestion but do hope some posters put a little bit more effort into their SUBJECT heading.

I don't mind reading what people have written regardless of the postings Subject Heading

I am retired as I am guessing a good percentage of the readers are and I can tell you I got all the time in the world and after 65 years enjoy wasting my time

of course some headings are worded the way they are purely because it is meant to "hook" certain readers who we all know cannot resist :lol:
