A clickbait is when someone makes a thread and then, for the thread's description, puts in a topic that has nothing to do with the title, "clickb8", or "clickbait".

This is usually done to get other people's attention.

A good way for detecting clickbait's is from this thread by DoctorExpo.

How to detect a clickbait

"Just look at the number of views than replies. If there is more views than replies, then it's most likely a clickbait."

Examples

Some examples of clickbaits are:

Example 1: http://www.roblox.com/Forum/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=177324211

Example 2: http://www.roblox.com/Forum/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=177322498

Reason: The starter of that thread is obviously a human, not a dog.

Example 3: http://www.roblox.com/Forum/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=177327048
