//what is wrong with 'help needed please'?//
If you didn't need help you would be unlikely to be on this forum, so the subject is conveying no information. This means that in order to know the nature of the question you need to open the thread. Some people, myself included, pay fleeting visits and do not wish to read every thread. I personally only very occasionally dabble in quizzes as opposed to crosswords. I'm sure I'm not the only one who frequently ignores any vague subject and concentrates on those who have had the courtesy to indicate concisely the nature of their question.
