Hello everyone,

To help make the forums easier to utilize and more organized, we've gone ahead and add "Thread Prefixes" for the Far Cry forums. These prefixes will add a color-coded tag to the title of your thread to make it easier for you to locate topics for specific platforms both on sight and through searches.

How to Use a Thread Prefix:
When creating a new thread, you should now have the option to select a "Prefix" from a drop down menu located above the Title box:

Once the thread is submitted, the Prefix you selected will automatically be added to the beginning of your topic's title:

Additionally, you can use the search options at the bottom of each forum to display only threads with a certain prefix:

We've currently added prefixes for all of our platforms, however you are not required to use them when creating a topic. Additionally, we (the community team) will start using them in official announcements (like this one!) for added visibility.

If you have any thoughts or feedback, please let us know!
