I'm new. When I start a new thread there's a line to enter a description. What am I supposed to put in there? Is it a list of keywords for a search engine, or something somebody is going to read?

...or maybe none of the above.

I've been on this site for quite a while now, but I've wondered that myself, I'm glad you asked, maybe someone can explain!

Don't think you need to put anything.....but I could be wrong!

It won't be me that explains, No idea.

Let me guess - you put "What is description" in that box so that is what appears in the thread list as the title of your thread.

Hello Blueboots,

The description field is optional - it's the short text that appears beneath the thread name in the thread listing pages, such as 'Latest posts' and 'New discussions'. It's intended to provide a little more detail than is given in the thread name, to help other users decide if the thread will be of interest to them.

Hey, thanks Daniel, now that I think about it, could have just tried it out and see what happens!
