I like the idea of the new forum but would be great to have some good starts to some threads about local places. The registration process was fairly smooth although oddly it needed me to log in even once I had registered and it had directed me to the forum. This font also looks very small on my screen and I wonder if there is a way of changing the default font.
I’m not sure how to use the tags function but it’s a good idea to set up some generic tags which will provide additional metadata for posts on the forum. This would probably be better than allowing people to create their own tags (which many people won’t do anyway).
