Subject and posting the topic in the right board.

Each board has a description that tells you which topics can be placed and discussed in that board. When a new topic is placed, use a clear and simple title for the new topic that refers to the context of the topic.
The kogelforum has the right to change subject titles or re-place the topic to the right board.
