Updated forum topics when logging in

Anyone like this feature? I think that wall of text is pointless and takes away from any other messages you're trying to get out. I log on and ignore all yellow text because of it.

I agree with player, too obnoxious, i visit the forum when i want to check/read it, a simple "Visit new w2 forum here!!!1!!" or a new banner would do just fine to get the message to the masses

Exactly, you don't even notice the other message because of the full page of forum related text.

The idea was to let people see some important news appears on the forum. Even if they never visited it.
As soon as forum is the main place to publish any news.

I agree this wall of text could be pointless, i'd apply some filter, like "important topics", "announcements", etc, i just don't know what to filter.
