I added this one too: https://mudlistings.com/index.php/game-listings/muds-that-are-hiring

I can do the same kind of thing with pretty much any field, though most of them probably don't need their own menu link. Any others you'd suggest? Codebase is one... gonna hop on that one now... any others come to mind?

I changed the menu structure some, so those old links above won't work. Just check the game listings menu. There's a submenu item called Pre-Sorted Lists that contains the different sub-lists of games.

No other specific listing categories are springing to mind. Everything is looking good.

My only thought, and this may just vary from person to person and really isn't a big deal, is when I'm looking at three columns like we are, my eye tends to start at the top of the first column and travel down, rather than going from the top of the left column to the top of the 2nd column, to the top of the 3rd column, etc. so alphabetizing the lists in that manner feels odd and unintuitive. It only took me a moment to "orient" and find what I was looking for.

And it very well may just be a personal preference thing so feel free to disregard, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

I see the forum "recent posts" thing... is there anything with the forum software that specifically lets you see a list of unread or "new since your last visit" posts? I've looked but I might just be missing it.

I think that is how most people read it too. The site runs using Joomla, and that part of the home page is a module I downloaded for the forums we're using. The default was to have them all list vertically, which just didn't look good with the site design. But you're right, it's intuitive for forum readers, especially those accustomed to TMC, to read top to bottom column one, then top to bottom column two etc.

I looked at the module code, and it looks like it'll be easier for me to just write custom code, because I don't think you're alone in how you read the list of recent posts. Shouldn't take much time to throw that together.

This feature doesn't come with the forum software. I've added a posts since last visit menu item, but I think this will be another of those custom code jobs. Probably not a whole lot of work either. I also need to code in an ignore user feature as well, since the forum software doesn't have that built in either.

Thanks for all your feedback, I appreciate it.
