I would say at least if possible, create “faux sub-forums” which are essentially just shortcuts to tagged filters, and then if people create a new thread while within that tag, it automatically adds that tag to their new thread.
This would at least, to some degree, mitigate problems of people not tagging their threads, and it’s actually much less cumbersome user-side… I post %90 in Feature Requests, so to always have to be adding that tag is an annoyance.
-Cubase Master Forum
–General (tag link)
–Presales (tag link)
–Feature Requests (tag link)
–Issues (tag link)
–Scoring (tag link)
–Scripting (tag link) : Project/Logical Editor, Input Transformer, Generic Remote/Advanced MIDI
If I click the ‘Issues’ tag link, then it is essentially taking me to the Master Forum, with the ‘Issues’ tag already added. Any new thread I create from then on (unless I remove the tag, or go back and select a different tag forum) will then have ‘Issues’ tag added.
If possible to take a step further, you could allow users to add what version of Cubase they have to their profile, which is automatically added as a tag when creating new thread.
