In response to the feedback thread we had a while ago I've begun work on a very rough graphical mockup of what the filtering system could look like:

You will click on one of the filters and the main forum will fade out quickly and the new filtered topic list will fade in. This is nice because it will avoid page reloads and make browsing through filters easy for guests with no patience (see linked topic above for what I mean).

Looks quick and clean. We'll definitely need an off-topic section or else it wouldn't be barrens chat.
I'd like some kind of collapse/expand system for the classes too to get rid of a little noise.

As for an off topic ‘section’ remember that these will be simply filters and the one-forum structure will remain, so there aren’t really sections so to speak. Happy to have off topic threads (tagged as off topic) mixed in with the rest once filtering is enabled.

What do you mean by a collapse/expand thing for classes?

Maybe I'm alone on this but right now it's a lot to read at a glance. I'd just like a button that looks identical to the others but reads "classes" and clicking it would make all 8 of the class category buttons pop out to be selected. Dungeons + Raiding + Leveling and Professions + Gold could probably be consolidated into meta-categories PvE and Economy. Maybe color meta and sub-categories differently too to make it read faster.

Looks cool... I love to have the option to filter anything and everyone!

But, when we are at the point where we need such tools/filters, wouldn't it be better to (also) use more sub-forums?... like we did in all the forums in the golden age of vanilla wow?
