I gather the people who do such a good job of running this place seem to like to keep the forum as close to 'stock' as possible.

However I think there is a good case for a feature such as the Custom Form mod offers, so that users are prompted to provide all the relevant information which would greatly assist those offering support, leading to a better and quicker outcome for those requesting support.

While the need to include as much info as possible is mentioned in Kindred's thread here it does rely on people reading it, and we all know what people are like  ;D

Just a suggestion for consideration anyway.

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

We have thought about it. However the unfortunate situation is that if we make fields required people are going to mostly put garbage in those fields. And if we do not make it required people will leave them blank

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
