I think that part of the reason for some of the recommendations concerning retitling are due to the way Newest Nodes works. The basic issue is that as NN doesnt track thread information a note posted with a totally new title gets "lost" in the clutter of the other notes posted. Oddly I think the opposite occurs in Recently Active Threads where a retitled note tends to stand out as it doesnt look like the other nodes in the thread. But Recently Active Threads is fairly new so the sitedocs probably predate it.

Providing your title has good keywords and possibly some reference to the old title (even implicit) then I personally see no reason against it. Avoiding one word titles, and meaningless titles is a good idea however, and I personally think its annoying when people remove or mess with the RE: count on the node.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
