Too many people make threads without even looking at the flair options, so the threads default to "general". We need to make it so that you CAN'T post a thread until you go to the dropdown menu and select a flair, even if it's the general flair. This should reduce the number of threads that don't use the proper flair when they should, which will also reduce the number of reports moderators need to go through.

You'd rather have unnecessary threads?

What's complicated about it?

That implies that a thread is unnecessary just because it lacks a flair.

It IS unnecessary to people who don't want to see those threads that are SUPPOSED to have flair.

For example, say you don't want plot spoilers, so you deselect "story/plot". But then there's dozens of un-flaired threads just because people are lazy or ignorant and don't put the proper flair. Sure you could report them, but that's just more work for everyone, and doesn't prevent it from happening again.

Do you think those lazy and ignorant people will stop posting if you give them one more step? At least right now, you have a way to avoid seeing topics made by lazy and ignorant people.

You can't stop them from deliberately picking the wrong flair, but you can at least stop them from ignoring the flair box entirely.

It's like websites that say "this field required".

No you don't.
