Request regarding headlines/titles, sources

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Tue May 27, 2014 4:19 am

Could we try to make our headlines/titles reflect at least slightly the content of the post? For example, "Racists Everywhere" tells you nothing.

I'm all for attention-grabbing headlines, but I would at least like to know a little of what the post concerns before I click.

Also, if you're reporting news, could you please supply a link -- or at least explain that no link is yet available? This is at least nominally a news site; at the very least, we should never report info as though we got it if we learned it from some other organization.

I'm very happy for you, but if you could please write better headlines, that would be super.

Surely the headline is the choice of the poster?

It is, but it should be within reason, of course. You've written headlines that grab attention but don't really say anything about the story; I'm just asking for a bit more info in the headline.

If you wanted to take that to extremes, you could do something like this:

Arsenal Defeats Liverpool

No, you won't have your headlines relate to anything in the story?

Ornery is one thing, responding to a polite request with 'NO, I'll never do anything you ask' is a bit different, don't you think?

personally i'd have thought that doing just that was the pinnacle of "ornery-ness" a height that few can aspire to, let alone achieve

I actually meant the business of "lol" -ing off a thread. It's annoying (BA's specialty).
