I want to talk about the new WoW expansion coming up but there's almost no activity in that area of the forums. Can we kill it and add it to the main gaming section? Anyone else think that would be a good idea?

Yeah, I think I'd like to see that as well.  It made sense to be separate at the time, but the traffic there is just not crazy enough to need it's own paddock anymore.  As you say, now it's the opposite and topics there often get overlooked.

Am I the only one who exclusively browses with the "view all unread topics" button?  I'd see a new WoW thread pop up even if you put it in the little used "palindromic acronym games" subforum.

I had never heard of it and have no idea where that button even is.

It's not a button, it's a link next to your avatar at the top of your page - "Show unread posts since last visit. "

I do the same. Click the link, open all interested threads in new tabs, then click the link to mark all as read. repeat as needed.

Ah, I see. I'll try and make more use of it, but it doesn't change the request.

I personally don't use that button because there are plenty of threads I don't care to read and just skip over, or I lose interest in after a while.  I don't even go into the P&RN forum, and wouldn't want those threads in a daily feed at all either.

And I don't mark everything as read because I actually want to know what I've read, in case I get interested in a thread later I can see that "oh, I quit reading this a couple months ago" and can catch up properly.

I mainly only use Tapatalk these days so I see all the threads but I don't see any harm with putting multiplayer games into the main forum so long as each game is contained to its own thread.
