There should be a limit on the amount of words that can be in a thread title.

I see too many threads with long titles that get cut off and it looks awkward. Plus, you can't really tell what the thread is about.

Just a minor annoyance that could be corrected.

character limit for thread titles is 100 ... anything more is truncated upon submission

Understood.

But, it still looks awkward. People should learn how to summarize a title.

Yeah, the old copy and paste... that has saved a many lives in the computer age! haha.. really... I think members, at least some members, may think that the title of a new thread is required to be the same as the original title of the original artical/content the thread is based on

I know that it is required on some forums - Breaking News is one, I think - but it is not required in every forum, even though it does seem to be good etiquette when the thread is made up mostly of off-site content...
