Custom Trope Repair Shop/Image Pickin reasons:

It seams that older Trope Repair Shop/Image Pickin threads have titles which don't conform to that few preset reasons that we're forced to use nowerdays.

I'm just wondering what happened to it and why. This isn't a request to have it back. In fact, I don't even mind this change at all!

I think that change had to do with the fact that tropers would not always describe the problem in the post title, and that forces us to.

Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

Yeah, it was something of a Nice Job Breaking It Wiki. Generally, the topic title should identify the problem, not propose a solution.

[up][up], [up] Exactly. I've actually been going through the old IP threads and adding tags for the pages that didn't have them, and it's kinda nostalgic to see all the threads with the unique titles.

Wonkyth created a custom title. surprised

Of course, he's a mod, so he can do that. It's just that it's not often that a mod uses his privileges to make a custom title (in this case, to signify there's two problems that he saw).

Hmmmm? Willbyr just changed it after creating it.

Still, it's not often for new posts to have a custom title like this nowerdays.

In uffish thought
Willbyr has been gifted with the secret powers of modliness, and can therefore create a thread and then change its title. He does that on occassion to remind us all to cower in fear identify when there's multiple problems with a page.

Drat, ninjas.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
