# Is titling a question “(SEMI-INTERACTIVE PUZZLE) The Actual Title” really what we should be doing?

It seems like this is adding the sort of information one would expect in a tag into the title. And not subtly either. As screaming capital letters right at the beginning of the title this seems like the wrong way to label a question.

As a tag now exists for such puzzles I'm suggesting we don't need to title puzzles in this way.

Examples:

Treasure hunt 'round the world! (prologue)

You're invited! Now what?

• I would agree to this. It seems rather unnecessary to include a Tag into the title as that is one of the purposes of a tag (let alone in all capitals). I once use to include "Riddle:" into my riddle titles (as I was new) however after suggestions I now no longer include it. (However I still have questions with "Riddle:" in them which have not been edited so....I think this should be discussed further) – Mark N Jun 17 '15 at 19:26
• i know what you mean. I doubt my puzzle have perfect titles and I'm not saying a riddle with the word riddle in the title is bad, but the title of these examples make me feel bad. – Bob Jun 17 '15 at 19:32
• I think it's also the fact that the 'real' title is smaller than the tag, and is also after it (making it seem very insignificant) - which is defeating its own purpose. – Mark N Jun 17 '15 at 19:39
• I think you're probably right, but I'd like to hear it from someone official before I make a change - I was simply copying the format of the question previous to mine. :) I do think it's important to note when a puzzle is semi-interactive, because they will be treated differently than other puzzles, but the big link at the top of the question itself should suffice. – Bailey M Jun 17 '15 at 19:47
• Based on xnor and his fabulous Meta.SE link, the titles of the linked questions have been changed - rest assured, they did used to look just as obnoxious as they do in the links on this question. – Bailey M Jun 17 '15 at 19:55
• Oh No.... What have I done.... Hold on someone beat me to posting an interactive puzzle? What???? I'm not even 30% done the one I'm writing... i do hope I haven't started a trend of bad puzzles showing up before mine gets posted ._. //continues mumbling to self... – Aify Jun 19 '15 at 16:02
