    Smile Wanted: Most stupid (=best) subject

    Hi,

    I'm searching for the best subject title, especially while posting questions.

    My favourites are:
    #10: "Please solve it"
    #9: "Programming question" (of course in a programming board...)
    #8: "Debug Assertion failed"
    #7: "Noobie. Pls.hlp......."
    #6: "Need help"
    #5: "Question"
    #4: "<xxx>" where <xxx> is exactly the name of the board the post is in
    #3: "Help"
    #2: "Help!"
    #1 (Winner): "Help! Urgent!"

    Do you have other favourites?
    Suggestions?

    If this thread will have collected some nice subjects I suggest the moderators to:
    - Add a search function where I can search for posts ordered by subject quality. This will be nice ... I'll enjoy to use this function!

    With regards

    "Help me fix my code. (very simple)"

    For two reasons -
    1 - It is a programming forum, fixing code is what happens here.
    2 - If it is so simple why don't you fix it yourself?

    A real good one is How to make a compiler error?:

    There are so many threads about here... (please search!)

    See here

    Remarks section:

    The question itself is not so stupid. The OP really wants the compiler to fail if the developer makes something wrong. But anyway I think it sounds funny, doesn't it?

    Here the subject has been "How To Create A User". Is there anybody out there reading that the same way I did? Explaining my minds is far beyond the topic of this forum and should be "child protected".

    Without any doubt, the worst subject line I have ever seen on Code Guru is.....

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and paractice; in practice there is.
