      Yep, life would be so much easier on forums if this were the case. This is why I like the concept of thread preview in Invision, and the hovering over the thread title to get the description in vB

        It does takes some effort to use least amount of words to aptly describe a title, and the is one of the first things that we modify for our members, preferably before the first reply is submitted.
        An appropriate title helps to keep the thread content reasonably on track, helps members when searching for info and gives a better positioning in search engine placement.
        It is for these reasons that modification of thread titles gets high priority at our support forums.
