Change Forum to Old School BB Style!!
The website is starting to look really good but I think the forum needs a serious overhall.
I don;t think its the easiest to use or navigate and frankly it quite plain and boring!
I would have thought using a a typical forum model would be better, styled on the old Bulletin Boards. Here members can have visbale profile details, a picture. You can set up differet moderators for different topics.
Some examples of what I mean are http://forums.cyclingweekly.co.uk/, and http://www.cyclechat.net/. I'm not promoting these other sites either, just showing the style of forum that I think works well. You can of course customise these to fit in with the style of the website.
Get your tech guys to have a look.
