An idea thing about [NZ]

Not sure how many people do this, but I tend to trawl the forum on a Wednesday looking for the threads tagged [NZ] to see what's coming out that night.

They're actually pretty awkward to spot, though. How about a sub-forum where the [NZ] threads can live for one day so they're all together to make it easier for people to see them? Or, even better, how about adding an "NZ" icon to the menu when threads are created (like the light bulb on this one) so that they're really easy to spot in the forum index. The icons can then be reset to the defaults before the next week's releases. Failing either of those, can [NZ] be placed at the beginning of the thread's title instead of the end, so they're all lined up and easier to see at a glance?

If it's just me that looks for these threads, there's no need to bother, but I assumed a bunch of people did this and so it'd be a really easy solution to make the threads more visible.

The front page is not always updated with all the games that come out that night.
(especially if I don't do my job well and don't spot them all until later)

The idea about placing [NZ] at the front of the thread though is one I've been considering for a while now. I'll talk with Sanuku and we'll try it out next week, probably.

Cheers, that'd be excellent. Should make scanning for the new releases much simpler when the [NZ]s are all nicely lined up

Is it possible to search for "[NZ]"? I've never tried it, but it could be helpful if everybody makes sure to write it the same way.

No, I'm talking about the grey shaded area on the right hand side. There is a section called NEWEST RELEASES. It posts the new threads in order that they were published. On Wed morning all the NZ threads are all in order there.

That's a decent alternative, but depending on the time you check it some stuff might have fallen off the bottom of the list, 'cause it's only a limited number of new threads.

Ooh, that's awesome. Is there going to be one for the iPad forum as well?
