    I can see how the Trending Topics part of the home page could become useful, alerting me to something interesting in a forum I don't usually visit.

    However .... as it stands, it is pretty useless because the thread title often doesn't give you much of a clue about the thread, as the forum is not mentioned.

    eg (cut and paste from the current list)

    Why do other people care who...

    It is not clear from any of these what the heck the thread is about, because the forum they are posted in is not mentioned.

    Also, as mentioned elsewhere, hovering over the entry in Trending Topics doesn't give a popup showing you the first paragraph of a post, the way hover over does elsewhere in MP. That would help people decide whether to click.

    I agree with this if it is possible. Now if I see a post in Trends that I recognize I click on it, but otherwise just go back to "What's New."

    I'd like this for all threads, not just the trending ones. Having the information in the URL or elsewhere would be quite appreciated.
