Hi,
I have seen many post having one or two word subject lines resulting almost meaningless...

While posting new topic can we restrict poster to write atleast three words.. icon_idea.gif icon_idea.gif

This will give chance to poster to rethink if he has entered topic title as "SORT", "HELP", "COBOL", "QUERY" etc...

Or Other solution could be allow original poster to edit subject line of the post (within next 10 min of posted time)

But still I feel fist one will yield good results..

There are Forum Rules already spelled out in detail in Site Announcements but it appears that there are many posters who do not read them (or read but ignore them). I don't know if requiring a minimum number of words would solve the problem or not. I have my doubts based on what I've seen so far.

May be because so far there is not restriction on subjectline.

If somebody gives "help help help help" in subject line just to satisfy restriction thats different issue..

But upto much extent it will be useful.
