If you have a question regarding the changing of topic titles please use the appropriate forum (i.e. this one), or contact me via PM.

see there you go with the discipline again! i bet you have a place for everything on your desk and if get a new thing you think carefully about where it will be put....and what side of the monitor it should go on...and would it look better by the phone or between the pen holder and the post it notes....control freak.

:-)

dont agree with you changing that title. after two years. you can imagine it is special for both me and sham and you just added to it for no great gain. im pretty sure sham is stil a mod and would have been able to change it back, but he didnt. im actually quite annoyed by it and the fact that the focus of the thread has turned to why has the title been changed doesnt proove to you that you shouldnt fiddle with them?

maybe i should retract my earlier smiley face.

Okay the title has been changed back. Sorry for any inconvenience or trauma guys. I've also moved the posts discussing the topic change here & picked a title for this thread (sorry but that was something I had to do). Changing a two year old thread probably wasn't the smartest.

sorry.

=== discussion about changing threads ====
So what is it you find the most offensive about people (me) changing the titles?
Would you agrees to the changing of titles if you were contacted before they were done ?

Page titles are one of the main thing that helps us get indexed on google and other search engines. By not having them full of keywords that people might search, it makes it less likely someone will find us when they are look for say "how do I post an image", if our title is something similar we will rank higher than if we just had "help me please".

well im sorry if i came across harshly but there was no point to it being changed.and the reason i made my views public rather than pm you is that you havent done that prior to changing threads. so why voice a problem with it privately, when they get changed quite publically.

im over it. should have just listened to faith. altho it started to annoy me more when it was brought to me attention, like antoinette in my last job. grrr.

I find it patronising. I can pick my own thread titles, thanks. Also, maybe the thread title helps with big, important questions, but who's going to be googling about Sham and Maedhbh's relationship? I find it extremely irritating. We're all adults. I'm pretty sure if we wanted to know how to post an image, we'd entitle our thread "How do I post an image?". We are that net savvy.

I'm guessing Pablo's point is that if the thread titles are more search engine friendly more searches will turn them up which will mean more people visit the site and there are potentially more members. Or maybe he's just being finicky...
