    Title Descriptors in Square Brackets

    I've been wondering where the descriptive words in square brackets that precede some thread titles come from. Can anyone enlighten me?
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Title Descriptors in Square Brackets

    When you start a thread, there is a box above the "Title" box marked "Prefix". The default setting is "No prefix" but there is a dropdown list from which you can choose the appropriate one. That then appears in brackets before the title.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
