Put yourself in the position of being a new user, think about the first thread that you replied to or posted. What attracted you to post? How has the look of the forum changed since then? Does it look any better or worse? What is it that people want to see first? Lots of sections, or one page? How should the page be sectioned - if at all? What's more attractive - photo album, technical, social or events? If you had to prioritise these what order would you put them in?
