Bug report - notification missing title

Something that I noticed since the 21st (of August), when I receive a #notification (of a topic) the title of the topic is no longer in the subject line of the email; for example person started a topic VS previously it would have been person started topic xyz.

Also for posting of a #note, the email subject is that person x posted a note vs previously the subject would also contain where it was posted (for example person x posted a note in group name/on their profile).

The same applies to other #apps (#groups, #pages and #photos).

@Chaim that's just how the new formatting is. We have taken out the notification target from the notification subject line and story titles.

@rastin, what is the reason for removing the target? I find it very annoying that I have to open an email/notification in orsder to see if it is of any immediate interest or if can wait a bit longer.

We are going to use it for a while and see how it works out. I do read that you are not happy with it.

One reason: it is much easier to translate the notification titles, becuase they don't have to use pronouns. It also makes the design simpler and the titles shorter.

Well, the benefits of the new story layout are clear. What about giving the term "topic" (e.g. Chaim commented on the "topic") a mouseover text that shows you the topic-title?
