Gentlemen,

 

Just a random thought here but what did you find?

 

Wouldn't it be better to say, "A New Constabulary Patch" or "A Flea Market Helmet" rather than "I Found This Yesterday" in the topic title? Then the reader has some idea of what you are trying to show.

 

I think that identifying what you aquired in the topic title would get more views from folks who might have an interest in whatever it is you found recently. ;)

 

Just my two-cents. :lol:

indeed, I usually skip over the post if it doesn't make some kind of reference in the title or subtitle, unless it's really convincing....

Great minds think alike!

Unfortunately, after posting this and the discussion that followed, it seemed like the number of "Look what I found" postings doubled!

AGREE, and I wish more folks would use "For Sale" or "FS" at the start of their threads when they are trying to unload something...

Greetings,

 

Just wanted to bump this to the top; there seems to be a lot of "look what i found" subject lines as of late. Not trying to be critical of anyone's posts but I'm more likely to look if the subject line wasn't so vague. I believe others might feel the same.

 

Best,

It has been a couple of years since this topic has been mentioned. While we know that everyone is excited regarding their "latest finds" or "haul from this weekend", it would be very helpful if you mentioned what you are posting rather than a random generic title. You may even get more hits on your post. :)

Reminder.... just like on eBay, the title you pick for your topic is what will get people to open and talk about it.
