Is it possible to "format" the message box for a forum? I've noticed that a LOT of posts to the "Jobs Offered" have to be reminded to include location, etc. I was thinking in terms of a couple of general "headers" meant to be suggestions. (i.e. they could be moved and deleted, not to force the poster to use them--more of a reminder.)
Maybe just something simple like:
Company:
Location:
Description:
Salary:
Contact info:

What do you think?
Oh, I know there's the massive recruiter reminder at the top of the page, but it seems to be commonly ignored.
"Recruiters:
Position postings must include a specific dollar range and a city, or the post will be deleted."

One of our bartenders was thinking that we should add another database section to the hired guns that would include a regular job posting type of thing.
A real database instead of trying to mash this sort of thing into forum software.

That would be kind of cool. Speaking of hired guns, I told Hall Kinion (Aaron) about it, but haven't seen anything there yet.

I've heard from several recruiters that they are getting a great response. I suspect that Hired Guns is a keeper!
