[Rule] Do not name Topics as 'Help' or 'Problem' or 'Need' etc

There are two very important reasons why you should not be naming all your threads "HELP."

Firstly, by naming your threads something extremely vague or undescriptive, you make it harder for someone with the same issue as you to find your thread, and because of that, the forum becomes even spammier and more cluttered. It also makes it take longer for people to find the solution to the same problem as well. On that same note, search the forum before posting.

Secondly, naming all of your threads "HELP" make you look extremely unskilled and unprofessional and as a result, you will attract even less helpful answers. At a glance, no one will have any idea what your exact issue is, whether it be with the server or with the scripts, and it becomes even more off-putting when there are ten threads, all named "HELP," as in the picture above.

If you're going to name your thread something, at least name it something descriptive. Even if it's something like "Script Error: Could not find UserData," or "Server crashing in timer," that's a huge step up from "HELP."


Topics that are named HELP or anything non-descriptive will from now on be removed.

This rule is now being enforced automatically by the forum software. When posting a new thread, your title must be at least three words long and cannot match a pattern such as "help me please." Failing to meet these requirements will block the thread from being made and report this error:
