    I would like to create Prefixes for different countries, so there will be around 50 Prefixes for countries like Canada, Russia, Germany, etc.

    question 1)
    - Will there be an issue when creating a New Thread as there will be quite a big list in the drop-down for Prefixes?
    - does this make sense ?
    - Is there any other way or idea of how to do this?

    question 2)
    Just to understand how "filtering" of Prefixes work:
    I want to use those Country-Prefixes for 2 different Forums. So when I filter the Prefix for a specific country within ONE specific forum, will this only show the countries from this ONE forum, or will it show the country-prefixes of both forums at which I use the country-prefix ?
    I mean: is filtering "forum-specific" ?

    Appreciate your help!

    Prefix filtering works in the current forum only.

    oh, I think I remember it is possible to create sub-levels for Prefixes ?

    Like e.g.:

    - Europe
    >> Germany
    >> Italy
    >> United Kingdom

    - United States
    >> New York
    >> California

    Prefix grouping, yes.

    hmmm.... just tried my country-list with a few countries. I just figured there are around 200 countries, so there is a lot of manual work to create all those prefixes :eek:
    Do we have some kind of Add-on to upload a list of countries and automatically create prefixes for a huge list of items? Something like an "auto-create Prefixes" ?

    I guess this is becoming a huge drop-down-list when creating a new thread.
    Or is this Prefix-box a fixed height and showing a scrollbar when having a huge list?
    Is there a maximum limit for amount of Prefixes per forum?

    The similar question
    What's the best way to arrange multilanguage forum? e.g. automotive - mazda or vw discussions are to be for the different languages.
    How does it go with the licensing? A new forum installation for a new language?
    hmm, white noise in my head...

    sorry, not sure what this has in common with Prefixes?

    i don't say the same I say similar - country-specific
    perhaps it can be solved via prefixes
