tldr; please give all subforums unique names/titles, to make "search" and "view new posts" better useable!

----
When i click on view new posts: search.php?search_id=newposts

i often cant say to which game a thread refers.

Because its displayed like this:
*Thread Title*
by *Author* ยป *Date* in *Subforum Title*


But there are for example 3 subforums called "General Discussion (No Spoilers)". For W2, T:ToN and BT4. So i dont know to which game this thread belongs when i view new posts. It could be a thread about Wasteland 2, about Torment or Bards Tale 4.

This is also true for the subforums
News & Announcements
Story Discussion (Spoilers Allowed)


And it also affects the search option.

To avoid this problem please give all subforums unique names/titles.

i cant think of any easy solution renaming the subforums... (probably some fitting names like the forum moderator titles ( Bard Hall Bouncers, Memovira Goons, Ranger Team Alpha)?)

maybe the forum software can show more information in the search/new posts results.
