Default More descriptive titles would *really* help

Can the listing rules for complete skate setups and boot postings require boot size in the thread title line, please?

Thanks again,

It would really help if sellers could use more descriptive titles in their for-sale posts. Try to use titles that would make sense even to new skaters. The undescriptive titles were one of the reasons we felt we had to divide the forum up into categories, so people would know what the heck was being advertised. For example...
  • Skates - at least include maker, model, and size. And it would be really helpful to indicate what the item IS in the title (Is it a complete skate, boot, or frame? Not everybody will know what a "295" is and who makes it)

  • Wheels - at least include maker, model, diameter, and durometer (aka hardness). If any of those are unknown, you can say so in your ad. Here's an incentive: If sellers start including maker and model in the title it would help persuade me not to divide the wheel forum up into per-maker threads...

  • Bearings - include the word "bearings" since we don't have a bearings-only thread and also include maker / model / size
If we're going to have a buying and selling forum, I want to have one that is buyer friendly, and many buyers will need more information than has typically been provided here. Experienced skaters and buyers will know what lips, fanfirs, 595's etc are, but the beginner or occasional recreational skater will probably have no clue.
