The default to naming topics "New Topic" if you forget to put a title on them - it was a little preferable the old way where it just barred you from posting if you hadn't entered a name. It happens a lot where I/members will forget to add a title to their post and it shows up in "Most Recent Posts" as "New Topic" regardless of whether you go back and rename it.

Having the same issue.  Members either forget to name the topic, so we end up with several "New Topic" threads or they type in a subject but it gets entered after the "New Topic", se we end up with thread like "New Topic Raid Strategies".

Also, as pinstripesc points out, manually renaming them doesn't remove the "New Topic" from the recent posts list. Any chance of a fix?

I agree. The ability for users to just do nothing and leave multiple threads called "New Topic" is kind of junking up our board.

No working ticket system tracking page and this is one of many problems not addressed.

As far as I can tell with no trackable ticket system, this has not been addressed or fixed in three months.  This is still causing headaches in my forums and I'd appreciate an ETA as to when this will be addressed.

As usual, another week with no response here or to the support ticket I filed.  I'm getting used to having to bump these week after week.

ANOTHER 8 days and no response.  I think I'm justified in being angry about this.

Aaron Lewis set status to Closed



So, my only response so far was to have the ticket closed with no explanation...
