CL810, I posted a request that is similar to what you are asking for here. I hope the administrators find a way to achieve this, I like scanning the default forums page (when you first click the forums button) to see recent posts across all forums, but its a bit of a pain when 1/2 of the recent posts are off topic.

This allows the best of both worlds, those who find the NST a big part of thier LJ experience can keep it, and those who don’t will be able to focus on the woodworking related posts.

I recognize this would result in a less mouse-clicks from users having to sort through multiple forum post pages, but I think its a good step towards creating a healthy, happy community without resorting to excessive moderation. In the long run, I think it would keep more users in the forums. Net, +1 to CL810s request.

Debbie, thanks for weighing in here; is there any thought of adding this functionality in the future? Are there downsides I’m not aware of, besides of the impact to mouse clicks I mention above?
