Describe your feature request
Make it so that new users on the ask forum have to fill out the entire form before they can post a question.
What problem(s) would this feature solve?
Wasting time having to go back and ask what the problem is, and then ask again for the repl link.
Explain what you were trying to do when you came across the problem leading to this feature request
There are a LOT of new users who keep posting questions, but over half of them do not fill out the forms correctly and then we have to ask for clarification. Making it so that they have to fill out the forms would help everything go a lot smoother. Plus maybe something that says
DONT TITLE YOUR POST WITH THE ENTIRE PROBLEM, PUT IT IN THE FORM
Also i didnt see a forum feature request category so I put it under the feature request tag
@dragonhunter1 is partly correct. I know a plugin that will do this but we currently do not have access to it. But we are in the process of getting access to custom plugins but its taking longer than expected. We should have a decision by the end of the month (hopefully)
As for putting their problem in the title our TL3s edit them to shorter
I noticed that you are directing this towards new users. Does that mean that the rest of us are excused? (Feel free to debate this) I don’t think it’s usually necessary for those of us that have been here awhile. But for new users it’s not a bad idea.
This is my own thoughts since im not going to put words in their mouth. But from what I have seen most users that have been on Ask already fill out all the fields (at least the relevant ones) whereas many new users do not.
Plus sure TL2 and TL3’s do not fill out all the boxes but or do it right, but we always include the most crucial part: A description, and a link. While new users and >TL1do either one, barely do either/one of them, or none at all.
