    The search function has sucked far longer on NF than it hasn't, and it's a bitch to dig and find older threads in the Theater when they haven't been linked in the directory yet. A way to make threads slightly easier to find, or for people to find movies of their favorite genre, would be to introduce genre prefixes in the section. Obviously some movies fall under different genres but it would help for the clear-cut ones. It would also help discern which movies were the ones users are looking for; for example there is a movie called 9, Nine, and District Nine...I believe all released in the same year. Many threads in the Theater have the release date in the title but it doesn't help in this case. However [Thriller] District Nine, [Animation] 9, [Musical] Nine, would be extremely helpful. I think I have suggestions to get it started
    [Animation]
    [Musical]
    [Thriller]
    [Horror]
    [Comedy]
    [Romance]
    [Drama]
    etc.

    Also is there a way using Xenforo to search by prefix? If not it seems silly that we're able to search by tag but not prefix.

    This is actually a great idea. I do check out the section ftom time for some news and suggestions, and the prefixes would help so much.

    I think it is a great idea. If I remember that right, the Spoiler prefix was added a couple of months ago.

    I suggest you create a thread there to discuss about them, but before get the okay and work together @Sennin of Hardwork . Also, with regulars' help you will decide the best prefixes.

    I also suggest if you plan to have colours for them, discuss about them in the same thread. Current Spoiler prefix is red.

    @Platypus I'm tagging you because NL's prefixes work in a different way (at least it looks like that), so if you can reply or tag another admin, please.

    I had admins add prefix links to the section description.

    Alternatively you could use the thread display options at the bottom of the section page (TIL...) or convince @Mbxx to install an add-on that displays all prefixes at the top of each section.
