    New and improved thread title creation in Upcoming Releases/Classics

    Didn't know how to name this, but I'll explain.

    From time to time, I see a badly named thread in the Upcoming releases section. If it's only the wrong symbols or lack of 'em, not enough info or something else - let alone my OCD, I think most will agree that it'd be better just for the ease of use, if not for anything else. I think that standardization of the thread titles can't be achieved via forum rules, but rather with having no choice when creating the threads.

    All fields will not be optional. Everything will have to be filled (OUT will be optional, of course, as it is now). After the input, the name will generate itself from the data. I've included the examples in this picture.

    Of course, this can be implemented in other sections, such as Classics section - with the addition of the year.

    With just a bit more work, instead of tags, we could have all of the artists and labels in databases, so we could, let's say, find every track from a certain artist, label, and, in Classics section, year.

    Optional:
    Every word must start with an uppercase letter.
    While you fill out the artist and label fields, it could show you suggestions (from the database/or something else).
    You also can't make a thread if you don't have a YouTube, or a Soundcloud link (in almost 98% of the cases, it's one of those when it comes to samples).

    Here's the picture, I've tried to keep everything simple and easy-to-understand.



    What do you think? Would this be useful?

    Would be an awesome feature ! There could be a search function as well. Sometimes I do searches before creating new threads but results don't always appear, until I search for the track name (+ the word "Trancefix") on Google.

    Yep, I agree with you on that. If you're searching for releases, it's easier to search from a database where you have the artist names, track titles and whatnot sorted, rather than searching for a keyword from all the words that have ever been written on this forum.

    Bump!!!

    This literally takes no more than half an hour of work (I assume, I've only done it in C++, with the help of Window class so far) - at least the input boxes and drop-down menus with options. The databases probably take more to set up, though.

    I understand this is not a priority for the forum, but I'd like to see it nonetheless. I'll gladly offer my help but I'm not sure I have the knowledge to do it at the moment.

    I really think implementing the new forum design in the future and whatever else is ahead would be a great time to implement this. Let me know if I can be of help.

    My humble apologies for the late reply.
    This would take days of work implementing this within the current software.
    I'm not adding any new features to the current forum software, but once we migrated to XenForo I will see what I'm able to do regarding this request. I'm very open to suggestions on how to improve things - but my main priority is migrating right now.

    Quite understandable. Let me know if you need any help in the future regarding this.
