Support topics for flows
Like /topic in irc
Tod Beardsley commented
I absolutely need this as a place I can drop one or two URLs that flow members should be aware of, like a general wiki or an important reminder about upcoming news, or something like that.

HipChat already has this feature...
I agree with Tony. In addition to being more volatile, a topic [should be] more immediately and pervasively visible.
To me, a topic would be used more like a "sticky post" on a message board. For example, my employer used the topic in Campfire to communicate things like:
* Timestamp of the most recent deploy
* Reminders when accounting needs to receive timecards from hourly employees
* Notices when free food was available around the office
* Other general reminders (ie: "Office Closed on Monday"), etc.

I would think descriptions (which usually wouldn't change often, if at all once set) would be different than topics (which would be more volatile).

There's already a Flow Description. It's just not visible anywhere, other than the Flow settings page.

This. This times a million.
would be handy to keep track of team based priorities (example. having a weekly deploy manager that rotates, could throw who's current "on" in the title so it's easy to quickly see who's up)
