I'm not sure if I am describing this correctly, but it would be nice to have an add-on which could place, on a forum by forum basis, some reminders as to the information which should be put into the post.

This would work especially good on "post only" (no reply) forum sections where people might post stuff......as an example, I just started one where people post the price of a certain fuel. This would look like that enclosed - the part of the thread shown would be automatically placed in. It could be either fixed or erasable.

This would be much better than hoping that users read the instructions in a sticky, etc.

Perhaps not the full solution, but you could use notices. Limit it on the new thread controller, and restrict it to a forum.

If they need it, they could at least copy paste it.

Set the controller to XenForo_ControllerPublic_Forum and the action to CreateThread

Personally I'd like to see an addon that lets the admin set one or more optional or required input fields for a new thread. This is great for support forums where we can request version , web server details, etc, to help complete tickets or transfer requests.

I've done this but didn't help at all. Users still tend to dismiss the notices (without actually dismissing by option) So this suggestion has my interest.

Fair enough yeah. Just saying that it's at least a solution until it's embedded and required thing to fill in, etc.
