Hey Justin,

When a member starts a thread in these forms and someone responds, the Subject Line of the email reads:

You have received a solution to your Computing.Net question!

However, in the body of the note, it more accurately reads:

Someone has responded to your Computing.Net posting.

Shouldn't the Subject Line be as accurate as the body? Not all responses are solutions. Not all posts are even questions.

Why not change the Subject Line to be something that fits every situation:

You have a received a response to your Computing.Net posting!

Hey,

I understand your point. However, that subject line has been tested to get the attention of the average user. What seems to be the case is if you say "solution," the user is more likely to go back and actually review the posting. I realize this is a bit inaccurate, but when it comes to getting users to followup on their responses, every little bit helps!

That sure says a lot about the "average user".

Thanks for the solution to my question. ;-)

No comment on how the average user thinks from me :)
