"Need help", "Problem", "What's wrong" type posts.
Summary: Name your post after the information you want, not after the fact that you want help.
You are in a SCRIPTING HELP forum. Most people can infer from the fact that you are posting here that you need help with some sort of scripting - that's free information! These titles are not descriptive and I will call them out as such:
If you have urgent problems (unlikely, what's an urgent scripting problem) use IRC, don't post things like this (and don't bump the topic if you don't get a response inside 24 hours - that's also against the rules):
A topic title should summarise your ACTUAL problem, for example:
Even these, while slightly less descriptive, give more information than nothing:
If I remove your useless title, or lock your topic and link you here, and you want to PM me a better title you can do and I'll update your topic and unlock it. Note that editing the first post yourself doesn't actually work as the new title doesn't get reflected on the main topic listing after the first few minutes.
As a side-note, while not technically against the rules (unless a mod is being especially pernickety and counts it has rep system abuse), many people ignore topics with things like "REP+" in them (especially as most people who post those topics can't actually give out reputation yet).
