Based on the discussion over on another Meta post (How can we clarify question titles?), I am declaring September 5-11 the first Title Clean-Up Week! I'm saying first because this is pretty much a test run. Some users thought it would be fun to gamify this, and I think it would too, but instead of wasting time coming up with gamification, let's go on and get down to business.
From September 5th to September 11th, please pay extra attention to question titles. Make sure they are complete titles that accurately reflect the question being asked. This post from Meta Stack Overflow does a good job of summing up what a great question title looks like.
Any post that is edited will be bumped to the main page, so in order to keep a flood of old questions from taking over the main page please only edit questions as they are asked or as you interact with them. If you are going to do something to a question that will bump it to the top anyway, go on and give that title a glance. This was previously mentioned as the modus operandi of user matt wilkie, and I think it makes sense.
Of course if there is an old question that you think deserves to be bumped in addition to having its title edited, go on and edit it.
This is a very loose event; there's no real reason why this has to start tomorrow or end on the 11th. But lets see how much we can accomplish in a week, anyway! And no, there are no prizes, but there are a number of badges that are up for grabs:
A real event, with a more definitive time frame and goal-specific perks is still on the table. But let's try to focus on this intensely for a week!
Please ping me in the chatroom if you have any questions or suggestions.
