okay, so yeah i know that the admin have a whole bunch of stuff on their plate, so put this request down at the very bottom of the pile, under category "I'm so bored and I have nothing better to do:"

How about inserting an echo or something to display right above or below (in red) the subject input field when you start a new thread, something like "Please use a descriptive subject, not OMG  HELP ME PLZ!!!" or something. Cuz seriously, apparently people don't bother reading the FAQ or else they have no common sense or there's an active underground movement against making appropriate subjects or something.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

That would actually be a pretty easy hack... we'll see what we can do.
