Feature Request: Filter the forum by game

I think it would be really nice to be able to filter the forum by game, so that I could only look at games I really care about.

Thoughts?

Could we have one-click filters for authors / artists / designers / etc?

Yes. I would like the game database to be a little more filled out though because it's missing a lot of that information. The experience of filtering by designer who's made 50 games and only seeing 3 isn't ideal.

I'm planning to host more game giveaways coming up for contributing to the database which I think will accelerate how quickly I get it really looking good.

What about all the ideas that have been submitted already??? Lol should I hold off any further ideas until the giveaway starts? Lol

Haha, I guess I shouldn't announce stuff before they start for this reason :P

that would be good! could really open up the way that the forum is structured (so you could find similar games by similar topics, etc.)

I agree!

That's actually already possible! If you go to a game page you can see the forum section and click 'See all Posts.' You'll see the forum filtered by that game. 

You can even follow just the games you care about and you're personal feed will only show posts related to those games!

I think this points out how filtering by games isn't discoverable enough though. I bet I can make a nice side bar filter for games too.
