I was wondering if I should always mention the name of the work I'm asking about in the title of a question.


I think it's optional to include name of the work in a question title, but it needs to be in the question's body.

Don't forget to tag appropriately, we traditionally have work-specific tags, and often franchise tags as well.


There are no general site wider rules I'm aware of (nor, frankly, any reason to bother adding them).

My rule of thumb is: add work name in the title if the following is true:

  • The question wording is generic enough that I can apply to a multitude of works
  • The question title isn't already too long and in need of shortening

Otherwise, I skip. The reason to skip is that most people viewing the questions would see the first tag (which is typically the work name) right next to the title anyway.
