Am I right to understand that the title of a question does not actually have to be a question? It seems that I often search for a question similar to mine but do not find one, but later, after I post, I find a "question" where their title isn't a question at all, but a statement.
For example, this question I asked has a title phrased as a question; this question has a title that is only a statement.
- Should I take the time to phrase my title as a real question or not?
- Does it even matter how the title is phrased, so long as it is descriptive of the topic?
- If phrasing the title as a question is not important, shouldn't we call it topic instead of question?
Consider this question you are reading. Is it better to call it,
Real Question as Title -vs- Statement as Title
Does it matter if the Title of a Question is phrased as a question?
Mac Address to IPmakes me think; the
tofirst wrongly suggests me that this would be a conversion, which puts
you can't convert them!into my mind, thinking about how that thought is non-sense I would then try to find a less strict relation in which you would obtain one from the other. So, I don't like that. Don't make me think: Given a PC's MAC address, can I find its IP?
