    The trending topics area does not indicate which forum the topic is in - this could potentially cause people to post without looking at which forum its in and be "off topic" - (a good example is the Hyatt forum thread "complimentary suite upgrades" which show up in "trending topics" - this caused several posts totally unrelated to Hyatt to be posted. Not necessarily a problem right now but will be once we get bigger.

    A different solution would be to note the forum in the thread title - but that's awkward with the majority of threads.

    The low level forum is noted, right after the date. But I assume you are recommending seeing more of the upper branches as well?

    Yep, stumbled upon that myself today... the titel of a thread in the Trending Topics was something containing "*G upgrade" which I thought would be connected to StarAlliance Gold Upgrades... but it lead me to a hotel forum (Hyatt I think it was).
    So +1 for adding something that we see what forum this topic comes from.

    I'm referring to the "list" that shows up on the right side of the main listing of forums - I'm still discovering the various areas so have not stumbled across your reference yet.

    That's a slightly different problem that can be solved with a title edit - it should be Gx (not *G) - currently admins can do that - and presumably in the future "moderators / ambassador / whatever title is decided on".

    I mean anything can be solved with a title edit - but it would be really clumsy to add the forum name to every thread title.

    Ah, OK. I was referring to the What's New button on the second menu bar up top. I guess what's new and trending topics have different meanings.
