    Could you work on better your thread titles, more explanatory - I feel like you're baiting us at times. And please code your links so what we glance at has contextual meaning.

    It's optional, but I'd appreciate it. Time management means I gotta scan things fast.

    I didn't click on it and I have no idea what this thread is about either. Of course it isn't just you.

    Ooh, ooh, I do I do (keep the cream and sugar though). Don't be offended by Donut's request. We've had several threads in the past regarding using relevant titles for threads. The problem arises later when someone searches for the thread and can't find it because the title has no relationship to the actual subject of the thread. Besides that, a lot of us will scan the titles of new threads to see if it's something that we want to read now, later or at all. It's our form of time management, read important threads now and the social, news and fun ones later when time allows.

    To make matters worse, your initial post didn't give any additional information that would provide a reader with at least a clue to what the thread was about, which means that I've got to click a link that also doesn't provide me with any info. Starting to get the point?

    It's taken me awhile to adjust to making my thread titles relevant also (and I'm sure that some will argue that I still haven't). I like to be creative too and sometimes have a little fun with the title, but sometimes you have to forgo creativity for the sake of clarity.

    Don't sweat the small stuff and congrats on your 100th post.

    Yeah CB. It's nothing personal. Just no one has time for all the posts here, and no one wants to get Rickrolled, that's for sure.

    Here, that could cover just about anything.

    It did. I guffawed heartily at that one!

    We're a creative bunch Jason. We get that need for creativity but we're also busy and overwhelmed trying to be creative and business minded all at once. Makes for insane levels of time and brain management.
    Peace,
