BLATANT INSTRUCTION to put more meaningful titles than "help me", "don't know the title"!

It's astounding the amount of questions that don't try to give the faintest clue about the movie they want to remember, but rather just ask for help!

Perhaps one can even rather easily create some sort of "filter" that doesn't allow for such question titles to be created. They're just a nuisance. Even the "full post" within the title (which is also annoying) is better than just "help me remember plz".

I suggest to have something BOLD in the sidebar, or in the "ask a question" page, before the text field, giving an example such as:

- The "question in one sentence" field should be a *short*, but *meaningful* summary of the key-elements you remember from that movie. Not all you remember, but the *most distinguishing elements* you can remember. That is, post something like: "detective/gangster noir-like movie where animated cartoons interacted with real people", for "who framed Roger Rabbit?", and NOT just "help me plz", "movie I can't remember", "I can't remember the title of this comedy", "movie with a cute bunny". "Cartoons interacting with humans" is not totally bad, but you see how it isn't so hard to be a bit more specific.

Or however it would be better phrased.
