Force Game/Category selection when making a thread. - A Site Idea.

Enforce proper categorization.

This might have been suggested before but I couldn't find anything on it. I saw a few threads the past while get posted with the default values of the Game and Category fields in place. None of the threads had anything to do with the entered values and ended up getting flagged. I think if the drop-down selections are left untouched (at least the "Game" one), it should trigger the error you would get if you left any other required fields blank. This would act as a gentle reminder to threadmakers who don't notice those selection panels, and be one extra hurdle that spambots must jump.

    Good idea, a little bit of validation could go a long way.

The installation for all games that support sprays is the same, and generally they look as they do in the screenshots no matter which game the downloader is playing. Your particular example may be an error on the part of the uploader though, since CS:S is the default game... I get this point, but still... I was trying to do this to keep those drama queen flaggers we all know.
    I'm too lazy to make one.

Years ago I submitted a spray and took screenshots in as many games as I could besides the one that I uploaded it under (mstr trolle). Nobody reported any issues over the years that it was up.

If it isn't though, it definitely should be since _compatibility of the submitted content with it's listed game_ is a factor. Example
