Many times I hear about making the intention.
I feel this has been made too vague so I have started a thread to try and clarify this for myself and for others (insha'Allah).

You would be right in your thought.
The intention is not really complicated. It is the intention of doing something solely for God's sake. However, sometimes people's intentions are not entirely pure. For example, one might want to spend in charity so others will say that he is generous, or want to become a scholar so he becomes famous etc. I am sure you get the idea.
