#1431 closed enhancement (fixed)

Auto-Populate event field on submit video page based on prior field input

The form on the submit video page ( could do with some upgrades.

The "Event" field could easily be pre-populated based on form input. The standard event structure is currently "WordCamp *City* *Year*", or "WordPress Meetup *City*" depending on the type of event.

If the "This is a WordCamp video" checkbox is checked, it will default to this first structure. Then the city and year portions of the event would populate based on Category input. Similarly, the meetup structure will be used if the "WordPress Meetup" category.

This change would make it a more efficient workflow for submitters of videos to have a proper structure enforced, as well as on moderators to ensure a higher likelihood of that same structure existing on approval.

In 8381: Autofill Event Name field based on Category selection.

This isn't bulletproof and is disabled once the submitter focuses on the event field.

Fixes #1431.
