    How Do You Make Thread Titles?

    [​IMG]


    Hello.

    Another activity.

    So when you make threads.... how do you go about naming them?

    What do you focus on? Accurate description of content? Clickbait appeal?

    Do you have a certain strategy you utilize?



    Me:
    For most of my threads I try to balance having a title that accurately relates to the content that also has a measure of clickbait appeal. I generally tend to work in a light playful quality as well.

    I tend to have a distinct style of writing so I usually try to make titles that reflect that style in their composition.

    A technique I use a lot to grab attention to the thread is to use a keyword that is highly related to the topic I'm discussing but in a way that doesn't give away exactly what it is.

    For example my last thread about Stray Kids. My title didn't directly say Stray Kids, but rather just "Kids". Which hopefully, if it works correctly, is vague enough that it entices users to click but still makes the association with the topic I'm talking about in the users mind.

    For my more general threads that ask questions, I tend to do more "straight" titles. As in titles that just describe the thread or ask a direct question.

    I think they tend to be pretty decent overall.

    *enter contrary opinions*

    "Dude you're delusional. Your titles suck.*

    :rolleyes:

    I'm not terribly fond of being clickbaited, so I try to be descriptive and accurate when naming my own threads. If I've got a question I'm curious about, that question will be the title. If I've got a piece of news to share, I'll try to title it like a headline. If I'm going to ramble on about something or another (as is my tendency), the title might be something like "Thoughts on X." Also makes life easier... I don't have to think about how to be attention-grabbing, which I'd probably be terrible at anyway XD

    So you're saying you get pissed every time you step in my thread? :oops:

    I like your strategy.

    Straightforward! Keeps it simple!

    And avoids any chance of negative appeal.

    Haha naww your threads are fine! Always quite clear what (or who!) you're planning to talk about! When I think of annoying clickbait, I think of titles designed to mislead, or ones which convey no information whatsoever. For example, if I were to make a thread titled "Latest BTS controversy..." but inside I just spanned Epik High songs to promote my faves. If your threads were annoying, I would frequent them much less than I do :)

    I try to make a straight forward title that isn't too long and gives the user an idea what the thread is about. I only click bait for a joke and normally don't ever do it. I feel like my titles are normally awkward though.
