    Mandatory thread 'type'?

    Thread prefixes allow you to assign your thread to a broad category when you create a new one.

    They have been on NSC for a while but they've been optional so they haven't been used very widely. I've been toying with making them mandatory, but thought I'd be polite and ask first.

    All it means is you select the closest category for your thread when you create it from this list:

    What it then means is you can filter threads from the main forum page. Only interested in Albion threads - no problem. Want to find that music thread that has slipped onto page 178 or something - easy now:

    Please vote yes or no, and please feel free to make suggestion as to the range of topics to choose from, remembering the list should not be too long and we'll not get too hung up in how they are assigned.

    Please note: if they are imposed but you're not really a fan, it will make little difference to how you use NSC. Viewing the Big Board remains exactly as is - it will only effect you when you create a new thread and most people do not do that very often.
