Do you think it's a good idea to make prefixes required for topics in the forum Find Lobbies & Players? The prefixs can be PS4, PS3, XBOX, PC, and so...

I think it's a good idea, but I imagine it would be quite hard to enforce without automated detection and deletion of invalid titles.

I think what the OP means is, The topic won't post until you choose a prefix.

Ah, that would be much better. I'm not sure how the server software works at all though, so it might not be possible to do this. It would be really good though.

There isn't a function to add within the forum software, to require a tag or keyword before posting.  There may be an option to create an add-on script which could do this; however, given GTAForums history with custom add-ons it would be unlikely.  Trust me, for some of us older members, we remember when GTAForums was the home of the 504.

 

Whilst most of the topics do have the platform in the title, they mainly have it in the opening post.  I appreciate that this is a few extra click/taps, but with the above in mind, it wouldn't be worth the risk to add this into the forum.

 

However, thank you for your suggestion.

If they would upgrade this sitem to version 4 then there is an add on that will exactly what the OP is asking. It easy to setup and use.
