Okay Harkins, need to add a fifth tab for all these threads that say "looking for (GAME) group in (PLACE)" or "looking for (GAME) players in (PLACE)", etc. I think we can all agree that we have enough traffic to sustain it now, the players and group tags aren't cutting it, and, in all fairness, it would be in keeping with the site's mission statement. Also, the find-a-game posts are obstructing all the cool, hairsplitting discussions of the worst game ever, first character ever, etc.

Currently, there's the Nearby: Discussions link, though it is kind of hidden, and if you don't know about it, you'll likely never use it, so the technology part of it definitely is there.

I agree with you that the LFG threads are getting to the point where they are clogging up the general discussions. I'd like to see the ability for a fifth tab to hold all of the conversations marked "LFG" or "Looking For Group" or something standardized like that, and something the community can do. This way if someone new comes in and posts and LFG thread in the general discussion, anyone can tag it "LFG", and send it over to the... LFG tab.
