Where are the [RFC] prefixes going?

Discuss general development subjects that are not specific to a particular version like the versioning control system we use or other infrastructure.

Because the forum is already called [3.x] RFCs, I suppose?, so there's no need of an additional RFC in the topic title.

Yes, RFC isn't really necessary since it is in the RFC forum.

It was agreed a long time ago that [RFC] is not needed and shouldn't be included in the topic title of any new RFCs. I edited a few which had been posted in the past couple of weeks with [RFC] prefixes as if people post topics using [RFC], it means others will follow that example.

I dont understand why not to include. I open only RFC topics when I click on View new posts and I use the prefix to easily identify those topics.

You can also go directly to the RFCs forum: viewforum.php?f=108 Isn't that easier?

It details the forum. Prefixing every topic in a forum with the forum name is quite pointless.

When was the new rule been in place? I had my topic edited once because I didn't put it in.

It is much slower to look at forum's names because they are on the end of the lines, which has different lengths. However, prefix is also first so I just quickly go thorough new topics.

It seems rather petty to randomly remove some instead of just posting a new sticky rule or just living with it, the [RFC] prefix doesn't hurt anything and editing users posts capriciously seems bad...

It also seems rather petty to make a big deal out of it...
