News Articles: When posting a link to an online news story, please post at least some of the text as well. This is convenient for everyone, and helps those who have certain sites blocked from their servers for whatever reason.

Sourcing: Where you copy and paste from a source, please provide a link. Also, when posting an article or image, try to stick a few lines underneath to start up the discussion.

Headlines: Please try and make thread titles as descriptive as possible of the thread's actual content - this makes it easier for users to skim the forum to find posts of most interest to them

I agree with that one. If the headline doesn't tell you what the post is I don't read it, especially ones that are just titled "Does Anyone Know.....", "Where Can I Find...." or similar!

Agree 100%.

When a thread is simply entitled "Where can I find" it makes it impossible for anyone to scroll back over the previous days/weeks threads when searching for something in particular; when a few more words would have nailed it, e.g.: "When can I find supplier of Tesco frozen foods".

So agree. We all need to be specific when posting for help. Likewise, I don't bother with links with no description of content. Life is too short!!
