ZX-10R Generation Sub-Forums

I searched but didn't find anything on this. The ZX-10R section of the forum is very broad. Now with 4 Gens of ZX-10Rs, has anyone though about breaking up the ZX-10R section into sub-forums or adding the sub-forums to the parent (general ZX-10R forum). For example:

ZX-10R Forum - General ZX-10R or Kawasaki discussion

Sub-forums Specific discussion for each generation of the ZX-10R
Gen 1 04-05
Gen 2 06-07
Gen 3 08-10
Gen 4 11-

If a person had a Gen2 and wanted to search through specific Gen2 discussions, he/she would have to weed out a lot of unrelated threads, especially due to the jokers that post threads with vague titles to their threads.

Can this be done? And can I help? If not, perhaps we could openly suggest better posting etiquette. For instance, instead of a posts with a titles like:

which exhaust?
gauge not working
Need advice on gearing

They could be listed as:

My Gen2 is Overheating.
Need Exhaust Recommendations (Gen3)
Gen1 Gearing is Unsafe
My Gen2 Gauges are Dead

I'm not trying to be a dick, but I do use the search tool here A LOT. Generally, I can find the answers to my questions through search and not have to post a new thread. But sometimes it's a real cluster f--k because I have to scroll through a bunch of BS.

Feedback from The Man (a.k.a. YSR50 a.k.a. site admin). This was a good idea which prompted a different solution to avoid subforum overload. You may have noticed that in several forum sections, you can now pick a prefix before your topic title. This way, if you are talking about something that is specific to a generation, you can put it right in the topic title very easily. At the same time, discussions that aren't specific to a model generation don't get buried or put in the wrong forum section, or put into a generation-specific subforum where it doesn't get seen by everyone.

Personally, I like this solution. On another (much bigger) forum that I'm on, we have subforums for model generations. It wasn't too bad a few years ago when there were only a couple of possibilities, but it's a mess now.

Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!
