So I've been thinking this for a while and just realized that I could post it here (d'oh.) So here it goes:

I have found that my primary means of accessing the forums is to use the recent-posts feed which lists the 5 most recent posts. Thanks to Forum 2.0, I'm not "SOL" if i've missed something since navigating the forums is now totally doable, but it's sitll less convenient to me than just seeing the most recent.

Five, however, is a pretty small number. Especially when we get 1-2 active threads it tends to crowd the feed out pretty quickly. I think it's perfect for a default front-page as it is. What I'm thinking is it'd be nice to have an easily clickable button/link/tab to take me to a page to view the 20-50-100 most recent posts (whatever number is reasonable) in the same format. Would make following multiple conversation flows, or getting a birds eye view of the last 2-10days of conversation easy.

Seconding this. I hate it when I bop by quickly and am unable to see that there have been multiple long discussions going on because only one thread is now up on the front page. Wouldn't need to bump threads as often.

It has been my hope to someday take the "last 5 posts" on the front page to a new level. That when you are logged in, the front page can give you a break down of all the stuff you missed.  I haven't really mapped out how it'd go about doing that yet or anything, especially since all site development kinda halted this year due to the wedding. 

That said, I too am reliant on that front page and also the forums RSS feed to keep up with the latest.  I generally don't find "new forum post" systems on forums very reliable, and the one here that programed is admittedly even less so. I'll let you know if I have any developments on this front but in the mean time if you already use an RSS reader, I strongly recommend subscribing to the forums RSS.

I did a small patch today to expand the genres available on the Games Section (you can see the changes here).

Please feel free to comment on the change in this topic.  Like if you feel another genre would be handy or if these genres don't make sense.

Made a post about A Link Between Worlds and noticed we don't have Nintendo 3DS in the platforms. Understandable since I don't think most of us have one. Though I was thinking I might make some posts about some games on it, so whenever there's some time could it be added? No hurry on that though.
