THis shall be more helpful in case we are allowed to edit the title/description of the article made.
If required this can be restricted to few mins.

but many mistakes can be fixed.. and can be helpful to generate a more meaningful topic.

I have wished for this as well, but a PM/Sticky to the Mod of the forum asking for their edit (cut and paste my revised Subject from that mail) generally gets 'er done.

Thanks Tangor, yes, that's all that's needed.

Here is the problem.

Member A posts a suspect title. such as "whats wrong with this?"
Moderator see the title and updates it right awy. "GoogleBot failed to index this page".
Member A changes the title to something else.
Moderator sends Member A a warning.

The problem? In general, about 25% of forum posters are horrible at creating titles - so we fix them. It is the one place where moderators are welcome and encouraged to edit without notice.
