Make selecting a Category required before posting

I see a lot of posts that are merely forum helpers categorizing posts that have been left in the Uncategorized category. The Discourse software does have a way to require people to choose a Category before they can even begin typing their post. It’s called allow uncategorized topics and this feature can be turned off by an Admin. This won’t prevent people from posting in the wrong category, but it will at least prevent all the posts left Uncategorized.
