I think @takeo hit the nail on the head with this one, Buddypress would be a billion times more amazing and revolutionary if it had the type of features he’s describing.
Right now I just have to turn off Forum Topic Activity replies, and hope they understand the difference. With some tricky css and changing the way the structure of my site is layed out i’ve been able to get your average user to understand it.. kind of.
Any ideas? It actually works on the sub-pages so If I look at the users profile Activity wall it displays the full link to the Forum Topic, but on the /activity wall it seems to shorten it for some reason.
