Ask a Question

Category for the thread or topic

Category for the thread or topic

I see that topic summary prefixes appear as below for example
[Education] topic summary

[Notification] topic summary

To describe the actual thing is that not all topics or threads are questions.
Some times it is a notification, education, question, useful solution, a defect (specially for open source software, no way to log issue like pro software). If a topic can be categorised then it is easy to follow .
Category can't be replaced with Tags.
Because, only questions can be closed or marked accept as solution where as other types need not be closed.

Recently posted a general purpose script in the ReadyAPI community. Couple of days later received a mail asking did I got answers which is irrelevant. So having category can be useful. This will also help to filter.
