I suggest to better format the title ("summarize your post with a title") area

By some odd mistake I wrote only about half a title to a post in Scientific Speculation yesterday:

The post stayed like this for many hours and two down votes came; unsurprisingly with down votes, no comment such as "I recon the title is broken" was left (and I find it plausible to think that the broken title caused to bias the reader just right on start).

I quite like the idea that titles are under post bodies in post edit pages but I think that the title area should be less "buried" between the post body and the tags area, should get some more special CSS and perhaps even get some minimal length; either way, automatic transfer to a preview page of a post (as happens in StackExchange, which is something I myself proposed there at the time) might be better than anything else.

Why does this post require moderator attention?

There is nothing broken here, and nothing to fix or change.

Anyone can make a typo, forget to finish the title, or delete a piece of it by accident. That wasn't the problem.

The real problem was that you obviously didn't look over the post after submitting it. Even the most minimal proofreading would have caught the broken title.

This is squarely on you.
