I was thinking about this and just wanted to share my ideas. I believe that the forum isn't integrated enough with the rest of the community site, or the crystalspace3d.org site for that matter. It seems so separate, and indeed it looks much different. Being a user of crystal space, the forum is very helpful, however I find it troublesome to navigate to the rest of the CS content that I need, and that I believe others like me need too, such as docs and tutorials. Forums draw a lot of people, and I think it would be a good thing to make it seem like the forum is actually part of the project, not just some side thing.
What do you guys think?
But how would you achieve that technically? We use tikiwiki for the site and the problem is that the tikiwiki forums are not good.
