- Rails Routes Question
- beginner question about python
These are all real "questions" that I've seen on Stack Overflow, and I think that it is completely absurd for someone to be able to post a question on here with "question" in the title. There are several reasons for this:
- OFC it's a question. That's redundant.
- It shows that the OP obviously doesn't care enough about the question to describe it properly.
- It breaks the system that we have in place that keeps duplicate questions from showing up; by not requiring the OP to properly summarize his question in the title, the system is not able to search the title for keywords and suggest questions that have already been asked and answered.
Just my $0.02, and I really hope this isn't a duplicate. I don't spend enough time on Meta to know what questions come and go, and there are a few different ways of asking this, I'm sure.
EDIT: Maybe I should have mentioned that it would be good simply to notify the user if he was entering a somewhat unspecific title. Also, thank you @kiamlaluno for the edit.
