Seriously guys, look at these topic names.

C# Basics

C Programming (Help)

Each line is a name of a topic. Can you try figure out what any of these people want help with? The answer is no, why? Because they suck. 

What makes a good topic name? Everything else than "HALP". A topic name should be concise and include exactly WHAT you need help with. Not that you just need help.

TL;DR: If your topic name is under 3 words, you're probably doing it wrong.

I didn't know what to name the topic.
0 Abdullah Nauman · February 24, 2015
Yea, I see what you mean Raahim. Though the first 5 posts have to be approved, so if they mods see anything they talk them, if their first 5 posts consisted of anything like this, the mods would have already warned them.

Lol I had to check if my topic name was there.

Either way I agree with you as I like to help people based on specific issue but if they make a topic name like one of those then I would be forced to open it even if I'm not going to help depending on the issue.

@Raahim, why do you blame Wheately?!
0 Developer John · February 24, 2015
Wheately is loominarti.

I'm sorry to bump this up, but this problem has gotten a lot worse lately, AGAIN. 

Please use descriptive topic names, not the name of the programming language or "HELP", "HALP", "PLS" etc. Thanks.

Someone with Admin privileges should pin Mathias' post  at the top of the forum.

I would also like to see someone post "PLEASE, stop copying and pasting your homework assignments and asking people to complete them for you." That one *really* gets on my nerves

Best post ever! For god sake! How can you expect an answer when you don't even post your question properly. More effort you put into a question, better answer you get.
Usually I close their questions on stackoverflow and then they come here! :D
Stackoverflow has kind of harsh rules, but more-less, they are reasonable. See why.

P.S. Negative votes should be considered.
