Make your title count! This is the first thing that potential helpers will see and it can be a great way to communicate information. Ensure your title cuts to the core of your problem and makes clear what you want to accomplish.

Here are some examples of less than perfect titles and how you might improve them for better results:

  • ‘Flow is broken’ - ‘Build all failing on Join recipes’
  • ‘Can’t upload’ - ‘CSV file upload returns error [xyz]’
  • ‘Schema issue’ - ‘integer column meaning detection fails’

A good title quickly gets across both the field you are working in - and what you need to know. Try to be concise and as clear as you can!
