I realize that everyone likely digs the “cool” skinned forum, but in terms of functionality I find it lacking compared to standard board software (Vbulleting, phpbb, Invision, etc.). I think that as the game progresses and the community gains momentum, that this will become more and more of a negative.
For example, the only indication of how recently a thread or subforum was replied to is at the root level. When in lower levels, there’s no visual indication as to whether it’s been hours, days, weeks, or months have passed since a thread was replied to.
There’s no way to subscribe to a particular subforum or thread and be notified when there are responses.
There’s no way to preview a post in its entirety before posting.
Please consider adopting a more robust forum software package for the game.
