[HOW TO] A suggestion for post titles to all forum mods

I am suggesting to the forums mods that we put [HOW TO] in front of a post title that explains how to do something to assist each other in searches for topical help.

A post title would look like this:

[HOW TO] Ensure all water is out of your system for the winter.

This would be helpful in that:

1. It will shorten post titles
2. It will clarify the difference between someone looking for help and someone offering it
3. It will reduce search time by those looking for assistance

What do you think?

Smithers, I think your suggestion is an outstanding one!

I registered here after being a long-time guest/lurker. I've often wished for at least some sort of standard label to distinguish the question posts from the answer posts. When I'm looking through old threads, I even wish I could search for just the "best answer" voting choice.

But subject field tags are a simple and intuitively obvious, user-friendly idea.
