I don't usually mind it but one time it bothered me other than that I'm cool with it
What Are Your Thoughts On The Editor Changing The Title Of Someones MyTake?
What Girls Said 4
I hate that because usually they misunderstood my point. So my title ends up being something I don't really agree with and is not the point I was trying to make. It doesn't help that some people just judge the my take based on the title and don't read it. And then I end having to defend my own my take because someone changed the title.5
Not a fan of my Takes being changed.1
I like it1

myTakes are only edited for grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. No thoughts are ever changed.
Most people add pictures and media these days so I don't really have to do that too much anymore but if I do, the writer gets a message asking if the new additions are okay. Editors should be aware of the process by now, so they won't always get a PM.
As for titles, they're absolutely critical and the majority of headlines just don't cut it. Nobody will click on them as they are and as we want your Takes to be READ, it's important to have a decent title. Even so, most titles sport only minor changes, like adding the number of "reasons" or whatever, or just reworking awkward wording. If there's a significant change, again, the author gets a message explaining the change and asks if they want to change it.
This has been the case for most of 2016 and the process hasn't really changed. Seems to work well. :)2
The admin who does that has journalism experience and is simply trying to enhance the title to draw in more readers and get greater exposure for your myTake. However, I also believe that you can contact this Admin and he is receptive to listening to your concerns and perhaps returning the title to its original wording.
It is intended to be helpful so approach the topic with that understanding.1
I didn't know this site did that. If I ever write a take, I would not want ANYTHING changed for any reason without my permission. If they change it without my permission, then it is no longer mine and I don't want my name attached to it.
I also don't like the idea of forcing people to use an image. If I want an image I'll use one.
This site tends to take way too many liberties sometimes.1
they didn't change my title but they added photos to mine which i found annoying.1
It would be better if fathoms asked before actually doing it. Especially since half the time, he doesn't even read the tales anyways and the title ends up misleading people1
I didn't know they could even do that and have yet to even write a might take , I could see them fixing the grammar or spelling I guess that would be OK1
I really dont like it. I feel like it destroys creativity and what we worked hard to write about.1
Usually it doesn't but the two I posted yesterday It did1
