    Saves having to click on the post/open in a new window to decide if you actually want to read it or not, can just hover over it and skip the next..

    Too bad. I think it's a great idea....especially with some of the poorly-named threads that show up her every so often. :/

    Some users really like the idea, but the majority seem to be "meh" about it
    From what I understand it can also put an additional strain on the servers

    Anyway, never hurts to raise the issue again
    Things change and you never know when the winds might blow favorably

    If the thread is poorly named you can report it and ask the mods to change it to something more helpful.

    Thanks for the link, quoting arn:

    "The lack of pop-up description was just a decision made when we upgraded from 2.x to 3.0. It was a bit distracting and didn't know how people would take it. It doesn't really increase load, might increase bandwidth, but prob neglibably.

    if people think it's useful, it could be enabled."

    Looks like mainly an annoyance thing rather than a server load thing, shame vbulletin can't add it as an option in the control panel for those that want it.
