Fixing Insiders?

No not as in "fixing" but actually making it move toward a travel related site:

 

  1. Move the location tag to the top of the post, above the title and make it required before proceeding.  This would make folks choose not to choose a location, suggesting a non-travel-related post is coming and then redirecting them elsewhere (see below)
  2. If they choose not to enter a location, ask if they'd like to go to an "other" category, with sub categories.
  3. Once they've entered a location, ask about hotels in that place, again required. If none is entered, then ask them to proceed.

 

This might discourage some posters but encourage many others to actually post travel-related posts (I know, this one is not, but it's almost Christmas and I should get some leeway)

    Thank you for the suggestions, steppingstones.  We are constantly trying to balance keeping functionality "out of the box" from what the vendor offers because that ultimately allows us to be more nimble and upgrade features more easily.  That being said, there are times where we stimply have to customize to ensure we are meeting user needs.  Tagging is one of the most critical aspects of the site and we will keep your suggestions in mind.  Thanks!
