Default Tech Talk Threads

Is it possible to have the Tech Talk section altered to where members with questions have to submit the question BEFORE it will be posted? I'm tired of seeing useless, pointless and ignorant threads pop up. This is a perfect example of what i'm referring to

I know on other forums threads have to be approved before they are submitted. This will Eliminate threads that turn into SPO's as well


Just a thought

No it won't.

But I'll ask the moderator if that's something they want, sending all new threads to the queue.

I know some places already have things like this (the blog replies in Speedhunters for example) but I don't think it really promotes openness at all. It's already a little cutthroat as it is, and I don't want Tech Talk to turn into a place where you can't ask a question unless it is deemed worthy. I'm sorry you're getting annoyed by pointless threads, but I think a little annoyance is better than having a pre-screening.

You also get the standard reply: report the posts you have issues with and a moderator will look into it.

I'm not saying questions should deemed "worthy" but threads like "what swap can I put in my civic and how much" are just stupid

By pre-screening A mod can have the member post useful and coherent info instead of the typical "can I put a swap into my civic?"

I can do that anyway, I just do it retroactively instead. Pre-screening all of the forum content just slows everything down.

I'm not asking about the entire site just tech talk. When stupid threads pop up on the site, members usually handle it

I think you're being overly offended by people's poor choice of thread content. If you don't like the news, don't read the newspaper.
