OK, so what I usually do is open up a bunch of "Updated Games" GeekMails, say 5 or 10 at a time, click on all of the interesting ones, shoving them into their own tabs in the background, delete the GeekMails and then go read all of the forum posts. Much time could have passed, especially if I'm doing this at work between compiles or some such. So when I see a forum title like: "Question on first playing" I have no idea what game this is referring to. Yes, I could scroll up, or probably infer it from the contents of the question, but wouldn't it be easier to stick the name of the game in the window title. You know:

<title>Forums | Monkey Auto Races</title>

It's really pretty simple. Please??

OK, I feel better now.....

See, that's the solution I like.

I don't know, that seems pretty long. How about:

[Game] | [Subject] | BoardGameGeek

Or:

Thread: [Subject] | [Game] | BoardGameGeek

Or, what would be super-schweet (and probably only used by three people, ha ha) would be the ability to customize various window titles in your profile: a thread title of "%g %s" would result in "[Game] [Subject] | BoardGameGeek", and the default would remain "Thread: %s", which would result in "Thread: [Subject] | BoardGameGeek". Your suggestion would be expressed as "%s | %f | %g". (Or, heck, instead of "%s", look for "[Subject]" in the customization string.)
