    Clarifying Recent Forum Posts on home page

    So with more and more fantasy based mmo's having similar classes and class specs, the titles listed under the 'Recent Forum Posts' section on the homepage can be a bit misleading (only in the sense that you might think it's related to one game when it is actually related to another). When you mouse over the title of the topics listed there you get a glimpse of the full title of the forum post. I was wondering if it would be possible to somehow add the location of said forum post into that glimpse so you know what game it is associated with. For example, the 'Funny pictures megathread' thread doesn't tell you anything that let's you know what section of the forums it relates to. But if it said 'Off-Topic Forums: Funny pictures megathread' you would immediately know that it is part of the 'Off-Topic Forum' and not from any other forum thread.

    Just a thought.

    that would be pretty handy, yeah .. maybe a colour-coded icon or something.

    That's a great idea also, they would just need to add a key of some sort on the front page so people would know which icons/colors went with which games/threads.

    They were actually working on icons for each forum to be listed there for that reason. I can poke at Sunshine to see how that is going and stuff. In the meantime reporting those threads to have the title changed to differentiate what game they are will help a lot. Sometimes we don't always look at threads the same way people outside the forum see them so we don't always realize when a thread title might seem like it is about one game when it is about a different one.
