Non descriptive thread title

you can use an excuse and say the nominal amount of posts made each day etc and it is about saving time but honestly that is why MyBB is falling behind. it is antisocial and egotistical to lock a thread based on a simple title issue. When in a community you need to draw members in and promote growth in what is a declining system you need to help honestly you are not above the end user they are your target audience and without them there is no growth then what happens to MyBB.

You can see this happening now  with decline in usage and honestly developers moving onto to other things i want to use MyBB and have done so for a damn long time but i do see this attitude within the community now that is pushing people away.

I honestly find it offensive to close or lock a thread based on the title when it is the content that should be the issue it is not about how easy a thread is to find the focus should be on finding a solution and providing the simplest way for the end user to gain the answers they are looking for.

I am a project manager and honestly if i had staff ignore or treat the end user or the target audience in this way then that is a failing on management as it should not happen.

I know i will be attacked for saying this but it is my honest view and i have been around projects like this for a damn long time and attitude is everything and there are simple solutions the time it takes to close a thread could have been used to answer a thread or request more information. it is not hard to ask for more detail rather than to be egotistical and close the thread as it does not fit that little box.

I'm not sure that what the MyBB staff is doing in regards to closing 'non-descriptive' threads would be considered "anti-social and egotistical". 

What I can see is many of those thread titles that start and end with 'Help Me' are totally useless in that website search function. 

Let's say, for example, the recent major issue of the 'Authorization Code Mismatch' issue. If everyone one of those posts began with a 'Help Me' thread, it would be impossible for someone to filter out the ones that do not address this particular issue. 

I mean, if I was doing a search for the 'Authorization Code Mismatch' issue, I don't care about the 'Help Me' threads that discuss a theme, a plugin or some other issue. 
By having a more descriptive thread title, then the search will be able to pull out the ones that I do care about and ignore all other ones that don't pertain to the issue that I am having.

That's (in my opinion) is the logic of why I see more and more closing of threads with non-descriptive titles.

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with you on this point.
