    There is the concept of thread-prefixing, which is being incorporated into the newest version of vBulletin. Basically, what this means is that we can set it up so that when you post a message in a particular forum, you are presented with a list of general prefixes. These prefixes are searchable, sortable, and filterable. So, you will probably be seeing this as an option in the not to distant future.

    How does that work for you TAROT? Sounds like a good fix to the title problems.
    Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.

    I've tried the "New Posts" button a few times, and I see that it changes the experience.

    However, having six "General Discussion" Forums . . . How about changing the sub-forum names to "Fantasy Discussion", "Sci-Fi Discussion", etc.

    There are also a lot of "Campaign Resources", although they don't currently have the same level of traffic. "Fantasy Resources", "Horror Resources", etc.

    I don't see the need to dress everything up. No matter what your going to have "resources all over the board". What does it really matter if the first word is Campaign or Fantasy or Horror?

    I think he is wanting it to be clearer in the New Posts list whether it is the general discussion for fantasy, sci-fi, etc. Right now, you cannot tell. I'm inclined to agree that it should be altered to be more clear.

    I forgot it was in relation to the new posts list. My apologies. I now see the light of such a change and also would like to see this happen. *slinks down in his chair*
