Group Forum Notifications
Hi All --
Just wonder whether we need "Topic" in the email subject line of email notifications. It strikes me that it's unnecessary, especially as it appears in every notification. The message I just sent out to our team, for instance, reads:
(CUNY Academic Commons Team) Topic - A few notes
I think it would be fine without "Topic," and that removing it would reduce clutter, especially for long email subject lines. What do others think?

See #6677 where this was implemented.
The rationale behind "Topic" is group emails can have other types of content besides forum topics such as new documents (Doc), new file uploads (File) and new group blog posts (Blog Post).
The type is prefixed before the subject title to let you know what type of group item is happening. In this case, "Topic" means that the email action is for a group forum topic. Group forum topics are most likely going to be seen for group emails, so this is what Matt is probably referring to.
If "Topic" is distracting, I can remove this prefix from group forum emails. Happy to hear of other solutions.
