    I'm pretty sure that's what he was getting at, and it's what my reply was based on, as well. Actually, at this point, Santo's thread has gotten so many hits and so many replies that it would actually cause more confusion to change it than it would help to avoid. I did feel the need to bump this thread as a reminder, however.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Lots of threads lately with just a player's name for the title. This is a pet peeve of mine.

    The best thread titles contain nouns and verbs.

    Amen!
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    I've also noticed that sometimes a person will start duplicate threads on ORD and RL... wouldn't it be more efficient to start the thread ONCE on RL as all posters have access to it?

    Hmmm...then what would be the purpose of ORG? I know, I tend to post mainly on Reds Live, but the seperation of the forums was for the ORG to be discussion free of trolls and what not, and RL is still susceptible to trolling.

    Also, Reds Live is not accessible to visitors who are not logged in. We should continue to put good stuff on ORG if we want to entice new users to bring more of the same.

    Back to the topic of the thread... the cryptic and incomplete thread titles problem is happening more than ever lately. Any chance this thread could get stickied for a few days? Please?

    It's the return of the thread that will not die!

    I've noticed some thread titles showing up lately that contain only the player's name, etc. I've since edited those thread titles to be more descriptive. Just thought I'd bring this back to the top for the sake of the many who have joined us in recent months.

    Yeah, but you guys killed the thread about the 10.

    The 10 killed the 10?

    Isn't that suicide?

    Re: Please Read Before Posting: Clarifying thread titles

    It's been mentioned a few times in this thread but I want to mention it again:

    Please please don't just put a player's name for the thread title.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
