The message boards are not that easy to find for novice users. When the "activities" tab is selected, the default view is "articles." If there are no articles, the page appears empty. I think there needs to be something done to make the other options (message boards, polls, recipes, etc.) more visible...such as if the index was on the left side, appearing vertically, for example. I think those sub-tabs are blending into the other 2 rows of selection options.
