Default Thread titles: ask your question in your title

Hi, and welcome to Calguns.

I'm sure you're here to read and enjoy, and to find information. Likely you will have questions, and you should feel welcome to post in the appropriate forums.

While searching for information, it's a pretty common practice to scan the thread titles.

Here's a common sort of title you might see: "Is this legal?"

Can you tell what that is about?

It might be exactly what you are looking for. It might be the 500th version of "Can I use a large-capacity magazine in my mag-locked AR-pattern rifle?" (No).

The thread title will allow you 85 characters - try to put something meaningful in your thread titles.

Take a moment and ask yourself this question:
If I were looking for the information in this post/thread, what words would I look for?

You don't necessarily have to get the very precise legal terms - you may not know them, and in fact, you may be looking for them - but try to put in nouns and verbs that express specifically what the post is 'about'.

Oh - and read the stickies at the top of each forum!

=======

Similarly, please include in the thread title the subject of videos or web articles you think are interesting. Explain in your post who is in it, and why it may be worth watching or reading.

Not important enough to be a sticky; I just try to remember to bump it about once a week.
