Allowing Uncategorized Posts

So we had this talk some months ago about #uncategorized and why it even exists, so this is basically just a plea to the staff to force a category to be chosen before posting. Can’t think of any negative to changing this, just means that new users who many not be familiar with all the categories will look for the right one instead of leaving a topic uncategorized

To change it there’s a box in

/admin/site_settings/category/posting

Just uncheck the box please oh please oh please

There’s nothing uncategorized right now, so changing it won’t make any posts hidden.

It can be done now, too; we’re clear of the warning.

i like it tbh, it’s like a placeholder before you choose what category you want.

That’s still a thing, just means you can’t post it without one
