in reply to Disallowing single-word titles in SOPW

I am against enforcing such things about titles. You could give a warning for bad titles, but please allow such posts if the poster really wants.

Also you could add a short note about titles to the hints at the bottom of the preview page. You might want to remove the list of allowed tags from the hints to make it shorter (if others agree), because if there are too much hints than fewer people will actually read them.

    Concur. I mistrust the idea of hard-coding so-called "community standards", especially since we have a decent way of dealing with them --- Nodes to consider.

    Now, if it turns out that trolling Nodes to consider is becoming a huge drag on our beloved Janitors' time, I might change my mind, but as it is I'd prefer to depend on people's judgement rather than a single developer's interpretation of policy.
