Changing Thread Titles

    Some may notice, that the thread titles are changing. That is because I feel it would be easier for people to find information when they are browsing thread titles, if the titles where more descriptive of the content contained within the thread.

    So I am slowly changing them, though generally leaving the originally posted title, just adding a few descriptive words to help people find what they are looking for quicker.

    I figured a good time to do this is now, as the forum is growing daily, and the information will become quite confusing later down the track I feel. The search function is very good, but if it returns a thread because it contains text you searched, but the title just says something like "Hi, new here", then it makes it harder for people to find quickly what they want.

    I hope this doesn't upset anyone, as its not meant too do that. Its merely meant to help people find topical information specific to their problem faster. A good example is the spouse forum, where I have now outlined those who are male and female, to whether their wife, husband, girlfriend or boyfriend have PTSD, so other males and females can find people within a similar prediciment fast, with high accuracy.

    Anyway, that is why it is happening, and will continue to happen as new threads are created.

    Just thought :think: I'd bring this to the front to help answer any questions and for newcomers here on the board.

    Remembering one of the first times it happened here with me. I didn't feel it was a problem at all,

    ......but I was rather suprised, as at the time the 'Renewing Spirit' thread became: Ren. Spir. - Dissociation. LOL tonight:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: ......

    I had accepted it, trusted perhaps someone knew something more than I regarding my post and .....quickly I sought to find out what the heck dissociation actually is. Bc before finding out, I simply did not know exactly, and had something more to learn.

    Half the time I am clueless about what to call a thread, so I'm grateful the title is changed or altered. And it is much easier to weed through what you're interested in, with the descriptive titles. I have no problem with it at all and actually appreciate it.

    Oh, this explains it! I worried slightly when I saw the title of my introduction thread. I was certain I had simply typed "Hello" and not the rest. Thank you, I don't feel like such a forgetful old lady now.
