Might I suggest a naming convention for posts here ?

Currently we mostly have Windows Mobile, Windows Phone and Android devices on this forum. As this "Paid Software" forum is not split up into different OS's (yet ?) we should have a naming convention.

I am proposing the following scheme, including OS, version number, and root status.

Windows Mobile

[WM 6.x] <appname>
For WM apps that run on all WM 6 versions

[WM 6.5] <appname>
For WM apps specific to WM 6.5 (or 6.0, or 6.1, etc)

Windows Phone 7

[WP 7] <appname>
Any WP7 app


[Android 1.6+] <appname>
For Android specific apps that require at least Android 1.6

[Android 1.6-2.1] <appname>
For Android specific apps that require at least Android 1.6, but are known not to work on for example 2.2 and 2.3

[Android 1.6+, ROOT] <appname>
Same as [Android 1.6+], but requires root.

Release dates, versions
Some apps include release dates and version numbers, suggesting that the date follow the OS specification, and version number follows appname.

For example:

[Android 1.6+, ROOT, 2010.12.31] MyRootApp v1.3 - The greatest app ever!

This is just all just a suggestion. Feel free to comment. I just think it should be easy to see these app sepecifics in the listing directly.
