Prepend [Unresolved] to Title Tag of No Reply Threads

Description

On the forums themselves, it's easy to see which threads have no replies and therefore no answers. When searching the forums, this is not visible at all, and it's entirely possible that you may open the whole first page of search results to find absolutely no answers.

No Reply threads are obviously unresolved, so per our meeting today, we would like to propose that all threads with ?replies=1 have [Unresolved] prepended to their title tag. This will ensure that all No Reply threads appear as "[Unresolved] Title" in search engines, thus helping the searcher to find a thread which may actually answer their query.

Yuck. No, way too meta for me. Every thread everywhere will be tagged with a prepended bit then, and it'll be an unreadable mess.

Replying to Otto42:

Every thread everywhere will be tagged with a prepended bit then, and it'll be an unreadable mess.

That's why we're thinking of only applying it to the HTML title tag, not the thread title. We don't want to affect what folks see in the forums themselves, only what they see in search results.

This seems bad currently, better admin tools will help in the future. Closing.
