Should I take the effort to correct spelling mistakes in titles? I get a +2 from correcting, but this is a never-ending-task. Is this useful or should I spend my energy in something else?

    And of course you should fix anything else that is wrong with the post at the same time. – DavidPostill Jun 26 '15 at 10:52
  • @trobbins, of course - even more reason for fixing the rest of the post. – DavidPostill Jun 26 '15 at 14:47

Does it make the titles easier to read and find? Do you fix unclear or uninformative titles while you're at it? Do you find it personally rewarding?

The first part of a question seen is usually its title, and so I think good spelling within a succinct title, is important to give a professional appearance to our sites in search results.

When editing titles, I recommend that you adhere as much as possible to the advice in How do I write a good title? - particular Jeff Atwood's answer.
