    Unlike the public forums, the private forums have a limited audience like a PM. I wouldn't mind seeing them more exposed to the members of the clans they belong to by placing a list of the private forums with the last update date. Of course a click on the name takes you to the private forum.

    I'm not saying this is the greatest idea since someone decided to slice bread, but I believe in some cases it may help in getting more activity in the private forums. At the very least it could save a page load or two in getting there.

    Even a simple "talky bubble" next to our clan names linking to the forum in our profile would be nice.

    Cool idea too! To have them show up when there is an update since last visit would be way too much to ask, and more than likely a permanent link to the clan's forum would be much easier. Having them attached to the clan list on the My Home page would be a nice addition!

    I still would like to see something that lets me know there has been a change in the forum like date of last update on the Private Forums page.

    How about a "My Private Forums" in the MyGames>EmailGames line on the "My Games" page where everybody goes? Then it would be easy to duck in for a quick look while waiting for someone to move.

    There is a link to the My Private Forums page in the Forums menu on the bar, so having a button seems like it would just be a duplicate of that.

    You're right - I'm just being lazy

    This is a great idea! I've seen private forums get pretty much abandoned even though the clan is still alive.

    I would like to see a link on the "My Games" page because that is where I mostly go. It should only be there, or be different, if there are new messages since last time visited.

    It would also be nice to get a link back to the forum if someone actually replies to a specific post - even on public forums.

    Cheers.
