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.

He selected individuals to criticize within his own thread. If you don't consider that insulting, I'm not aware of what standards you are living by.


Good. 
If they put more effort in their questions, they wouldn't be criticized. He just shown, how much people can be lazy.

@John, I'm not sure how he's being a douchebag.. He didn't insult anyone in particular. The worst thing he said was that some peoples topic names suck. 
0 Developer John · February 22, 2015
Don't be such a douche bag about it. Just ask nicely.
0 Branislav Lazic · February 21, 2015
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.

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

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.
