    You have been asked to give your posts more helpful titles.

    Please also edit the first sentence; there's a missing word and a dreadful typo.

    And the missing word needs to go in the "gap" (not the "gab").
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
