I'm still holding out hope, but I don't see it yet... the biggest, grandest, forum related desire I have is for the ability to filter out threads in which I am not interested.
For example, before too much longer I am going to have zero interest in any threads on the topic of how awesome/terrible the forum redesign is. And yet there will be fifty of them constantly updating and drowning out actual game related topics. I don't begrudge the community from continuing to discuss whatever topics tickle their fancy, I just want the ability to filter out threads in which I am not interested.
Am I wrong or shouldn't that be a basic feature of any forum?
