Maybe that should be the next poll question:

What was your major in college / current Profession?

Computer Programer

System Engineer

Network Technician

Support Center

Other

function callTony($subject){
if(getInstanceof($subject, "romanji")){
$subject = "Tony, get in here and bring your bat.";
}
}

Hahaha...

Seriously though, we should think of something about the stupid thread titles, as well as the repeated translation and help threads. I would just say that drop a post giving the advice:

HELP! -> "I'm a whiny brat who can't use google."
Translate this! -> "I think that just because some of you have over 1000 posts, that you have nothing better to do than translate random anime for me."
What's romanji? -> "Tony, we need you in here."


..the locking or deleting the thread, but that's just too harsh. :o

Is it just me or is the number of threads with uninformative titles increasing? Maybe I'm just getting more annoyed by them?

Just from today's threads with new posts:

How would you say . . . ?
Just Curious HELP!

Tetsu datte kudasai~ -
New here....PLEASE HELP -
Can somebody translate this?

Well if some php was written I think it would just become more uninformative, filled with random anime crap (can i say that?) but considering it is all crap the forms might start looking like toilets.

I use HTML so here I go,
<style="SubjectEdit" class="Tony&Bat">
<text subject="Romanji">
<detect "subject"=change>
<change="Tony%20needed%20with%20his%20bat">
<OnDetect=change><change GetClass="make%20FAQ%20bigger&bolder>
</style>

Did you notice there is a new thread out there? Its title is need help. Wow.

EDIT: Hey, I might as well just drop a post in these threads, unless someone objects...

but then a large portion of the community probably wouldn't be able to answer that truthfully....

And I believe that the number of uninformative titles is directly related to the number of TJP users. The more users join, the more crap TJP collects...though the same can probably be said about the good...
