Please make your post titles descriptive...
 
Sorry about the rant here guys (and gals if applicable), but one thing I've been noticing is the post titles are very non descriptive. Using "Help me", for example, instead of describing the problem like: "85 s10, vacuum front axle won't engage". There are two problems with the "help me" way of titling a post. The first thing that's wrong with it is that sometimes people are busy and don't have time to check out everything (not much of a problem on this board since it doesn't get a ton of posts like the SWB Jeep board, but still can cause questions to not get answered or to get ignored. The second thing that's the bigger problem with not being descriptive with your title, is the fact that when you have a less than descriptive post, when people go to use the search feature it probably won't bring up many relevant threads, and cause people who could have otherwise easily found the info they needed to post the same question again for us to answer the same way...

Again, sorry for the rant, but I'm just trying to help everyone out a bit...
