The What is This? forum thread titles should have a fairly standardised format including where possible:

  • breed of subject bird(s) (if known)
  • age of subject bird(s)
  • number of birds in question
  • what you would like assistance with - for example gender? or colour? or breed?

In the body of post at least one photo and as much relevant information as possible. If there are multiple photos of a particular bird it should be made clear.

A please will never go astray either. :wink:

Including such key info makes the whole Info Centre easier to use. Among the reasons for this consider:

  • Readers do not then have to click to find out what a post is really about - many people just won't bother ;) so it is the poster's interest to be clear.
  • It won't matter so much that a post has been made in perhaps not the most appropriate forum as it is less likely to be overlooked by those who can assist you.
  • It makes BYP's Search facility easier to use
  • It makes Indexing topics for each particular forum easier for moderators.
