If I may, I would really like to support the subforum being called "Hacking" (or at minimum have the word "hacking" in it). We would only be offending people completely ignorant to the field, but that's sort of inevitable. This forums users tend to be a little more informed than the average person, and a sticky could be made stating what hacking is, and what kind of hacking is allowed. If the name "hacking" still posed a problem, it could always be changed in the future.

Excellent point for sure. It could have a good fit in the description of the subforum (and possibly in a sticky too).
Great idea about having a prefix on the titles. (I actually support all threads having a prefix). And I think the idea of tagging/metadata is great too. Perhaps something like that could eventually be software implemented.
