One thing I find very interesting on some forums is a page that lists the 20 or so most recent topics that have seen activity. Because LVL has quite a few topic categories I'd personally find this useful when I'm just popping in for a bit.

Just a suggestion.

PS- RFF obviously is an example of a site that does this.

Thanks for the suggestion/feedback!

LVL actually does have the active topics feature. There's no link to it on the forum pages however - it's located in the "Personal messages" menu on all non-forum pages.

That (and a couple of other) links might be good to have actually within the forums; I'll see about adding that.

There's also the "Recent forum topics" block on the lower right side on all non-forum pages.

Ask and ye shall receive. :D

You'll notice a new line of links atop the forum pages:
View unanswered posts | View active topics | View unread posts | View new posts | View your posts

How does this work for everyone?

We've taken the "active topics" step even further.

Now, when you click on a major forum category, you'll be presented with the active topics for that category (from all the sub-forums it contains). I don't know if this works for people, so see what you think...

For example, look at the (new) Images and Genres category.
