Auto generate titles with multiple fields

One thing I see often is people saying "price in title", "store in title" etc. - it made me think - why don't we just have mandatory fields as part of submitting a new deal, which the system would then take to auto generate a title in a pre-defined format?

Product/Service Name:
RRP (if available):
Store Name:

And the system just joins it up and formats it as per our requirements?

    Stop this common sense immediately. What will all the power users do now?

    I actually agree with you. It will be a more consistent format for sure.

    At The Moment The System Seems Hell Bent On Capitalising Every Word For Some Weird Reason and I'm glad to see you ignored the option.

      If auto generated titles was implemented the power users can still fix spelling mistakes, add/remove tags, add missing details, fix wrong links/pricing/delivery/expiry dates, move deals/forum posts to the correct category, mark deals as expired or out of stock.

        You can't fix this speeling mistake!

    What a great idea.

    It would make life easier for everyone, especially power users.

  • Great idea!

  • Would be nice to see, more consistent titles. Some posts start off with [ ] and some without the brackets. Some have the price in ( ) and at the end of the title and some put it in the middle.

    Would definitely make it easier and make it look a whole lot more consistent.
