I asked a question, where the original title was
Free alternative to Adobe VoCo
A moderator then left the following comment:
Would you mind removing the word "Adobe VoCo" from the title? Or at least write a title like "Sound editor to insert words into speech (Free alternative to Adobe VoCo)". Thanks!
So I changed the title and tried to find some reasoning here on Meta why such a title is not wanted.
Here's what I found:
Basically, it is ok to ask for alternatives.
There are guidelines on how to ask for alternatives, which has a good explanation of why the sole request for an alternative is not sufficient. However, it does not mention any requirements on the title. It's more about the remaining content of the question.
Titles do not need to be a question, so there's no question mark needed.
Nothing seems to prevent a title like "Free alternative to ...". Why did the moderator then ask me to change the title?
