More Logical Url Structure

i think the structure needs a more logical approach. Something like:

xenforo.com/community/noun/verb - for action based requests

Example:

xenforo.com/community/members/editstatus
xenforo.com/community/settings/changepassword

Where the first part after the community folder is the parent and the thing after that is the child request.

and

xenforo.com/community/noun/ID-Title - for ID based requests

Example:

xenforo.com/community/threads/123-The-Most-Awesome-Foro-Software

Ofcourse additional params can be entered at the end of the url.

PS; sorry this thread is too nitpickey :p

I disagree with ID-title structures. A title is read LTR not RTL, so the title should come before the ID so people read the title before the ID (additional technological information).

Yeah, that seems more logical. Bear in mind that these are exmaples and there could be better way of doing it :)

I disagree with your choice for threads.
Code:
xenforo.com/community/threads/123-The-Most-Awesome -Foro-Software
The threads in there adds little value to both the end user and for SEO. Instead it should have a forum name, if at all anything.
If a forum name, then it should be logical.
That is, if you remove the parts following the forum name(the thread context) you should be directed to the "forum view page".

Similarly for the settings and other URL structures you have mentioned.

Not in all languages, there are RTL languages too ;)
