Summary0003742: Defaults for most required fields (idea staging issue)
DescriptionI just skim-read an interesting article about how required fields should be considered bad:

It's a polemic, but it makes you think some unchecked assumptions.

For example, on a news article, should the title really be manually entered for every article you post? Why can't we just default the article title to something like "November update". We already do something similar for calendar events.

Go through all required fields and see if we can get some defaults for them in there.
