Have you ever considered redesigning your boards / forum to make them look and feel like the more regular message boards that one finds on the web. To be honest the current one is far to cumbersome to be of any greaqt use.
I also spotted a suggestion made some time ago for allowig managers to customise their site a bit more - for example having ones guest book or message boards accessable direclty on the home page - that for me would be a great idea
oK so there's my tuppance worth
ps - i'm not simply complaining I would just like to see things a bit better
