Scenario Thread Titles
Running hypothetical scenarios through our own minds and getting the feedback of other, more experienced carriers and shooters is a very interesting and important part of our carrying experience. Not to mention it can also help bring understanding to those who may not have thought of many situations and how they would react.
Of course, the big question when running these scenarios is, "What would you do?" and so it's very easy to put those exact words in the title of your hypothetical scenario.
But remember that each thread is unique with it's own unique situation and if everyone titled their thread with the exact four words there would be confusion and probably some skipping of your thread because a reader might think he has already read it. After all, it has the same title as all the other threads.
When scenario threads get posted with titles like, "What would you do?", "How would you react?", "What do you think?" or "Should I have done this or that?" don't be surprised to find the title changed. It helps the forum members and the staff to have at least a brief two or three word description of the thread to help organize thoughts and threads.
At one point in time we had five "What would you do?" threads running at one time and it was very confusing.
It would be a great help to the moderators and members if the original posters of the thread would briefly specify the scenario in the title.
"Dog Jumps Fence," "LEO Confuses You for BG", "Wife Attacks Neighbor".. Something to help pinpoint the subject matter about to be discussed.
People also might want to make it location specific.
What is Kosher in CT may get you in DEEP trouble in MA, and both of those answers are likely to be unhelpful for those living in TX, WV or MT.
Also, if you are in a large state that had a vastly different culture in different sections, please say so. CA has some very liberal areas...and some that will almost accept "He needed killin, Your Honor..."
A reminder for new forum members: Try to be specific in your thread titles.
Vague thread titles will be changed.
How about just put in the title, "WWMAD?", for "What would Massad Ayoob do"?
Actually just starting them with "H.S" (hypothetical scenario) would do it, simlar to a for sale post using F.S.
Problem is you are thinking that those posters actually could post a coherent thread title, that actually related to their initial thought, yet leaves a good clear preview of what the thread is actually about.

The more you do it the more ingrained it will become.
