Lately, it seems like a significant number of edits on Story Identification queries have less to do with clarifying the query and more to do with one's personal views on what should be in the title. There was a general trend at one point of adding "Story ID" or the like to the front and now someone seems to be taking them out. In either case, people seem to have an aversion to "Looking for a..." at the beginning or questions that simply state what the querent is looking for such as "Short story where alien is underwater and sinking". In the interest of avoiding an edit war, do we want an agreement on what's a reasonable template to work from?
And honestly, it's not bad yet. Most of the time, the title change is in addition to fixes in the body. Most of the time...
On a side note, the sidebar recommended Should "Story identification" be mentioned in the question as well? where it looks like the general consensus was that the question title itself should be sufficient. That suggests to me that it's pretty fair game to modify "Robot seeking Human Female for Reproducing" to "Looking for a short story about a robot seeking a human female to create more robots". Ideally, the question title should have the core details such as what sort of media and general era, but those can often work fine in the body. I do feel that Story Identification questions need a title that conveys the idea that you are looking for it, not that you want to discuss it, or place a personal ad.
Further points raised in these comments that this may interact strangely with the Hot Network Questions since they don't see tags.
