    Bragging in post titles <<< AWESOME TOPIC

    In the SitePoint Marketplace section, especially in the "sell your _" forums, many of the post title's look like this: -
    Awesome Site For Sale
    Nice Gaming Template
    Hosting Template - Low Price

    Shouldn't this be against the rules? I would much rather have a proper description of the post in the topic title than be forced to read an egotistical title.

    I know I'm new here, so this post is probably already breaking the rules.

    Regards,
    Louis

    Louis - asking questions is never aginst the rules here!

    the problem we have is that people type the title is the way they think will grab most peoples attention - a bit like your "awesome topic", to grab peoples attention - whilst yes I always try to ensure my titles give some details about what I am asking but not everyone does it that way and I don't believe that we should force them. We did have a number of "HELP ME" post titles which as you can imagine was not funbut people eventually learn to use descriptive titles gave them a better response.

    In short whilst annoying this isn't something I believe we can or should alter....

    Thanks and welcome to the forums

    They are shooting themselves in the foot really as we know to avoid such threads.
