Please post your nominations for the Best of Code Review 2014 - Best Title category.

The question with the best title.

In your nomination post, please make sure to include a link to the revision of the question (from the revision history) that introduced the nominated title, as well as a short explanation of what makes that post worthy of being nominated in this category, and why it should win over the others.


Small characters at the bottom: Only one nomination per post, nominated questions must have a creation date in 2014, downvotes don't count, and Santa reserves the right to award the top-voted nominee a special bounty as a token of appreciation on behalf of the Code Review community. Since this is a question category, the author of the nominated revision must also have an answer on the nominated question, to qualify for a prize - note that a revision can be nominated regardless of whether or not the revision's author has an answer on that question.

Regularity in the “Rusty Towel of Mutual understanding”

Author: Rolfl (revision 3) | answered

This question also went to the Hot Network Questions and into the weekly CR newsletter the week it was posted. I think this was a great title because it's not only eye-catching and intriguing, it actually - believe it or not - says exactly what the post is about, and what the OP's main concern is. We need more titles like this!

KISS my... unit of work

Author: Mat's Mug (OP)

This question went to the Hot Network Questions and into the weekly CR newsletter the week it was posted. I think it was a great title because there's a touch of humor, and it still conveys what the post is about and what the OP's main concern is.

    \$\begingroup\$ It should be noted that this question started off as off-topic - it was edited by a bunch of CR regulars, got reopened, and ended up as a hot network question. The title certainly played a major part in that question's success. Well done @pimgd! \$\endgroup\$ – Mathieu Guindon Jan 1 '15 at 2:18
