What brought me to this forum was the review of the Ultra m998 computer case, which I found while Googling for info on my new build. I was so impressed with the depth of this review I decided to head on over to the forums and sign up to ask some questions. I don't really have any suggestions at the moment, but I will say this .... Olin, just keep doing what you're doing, because your reviews and your help with answering a lot of my questions has made a full time member out of me.

I've always said that a shout box is always cool.
It gives people a chance to talk in real time. Maybe to meet on a server or something.
We have one over at CDU and it gets used everyday.

A ShoutBox would be a really nice thing to have allow as said everyone to talk in real time and usally u can end up making a friend getting there msn or something so that kinda makes the community tighter

Ive also noticed there is no Whos on line, I bet this was probally intentional though?

Other then that i like the forum its got just enough sections to it its not bloated as some forums which have 30 sections with 40 sub sections

So ShoutBox for President in 2008!

Olin,

I think a landing page for the forums would be a nice addition, something like the 20 most recent posts, regardless from what forum they are in. Of course you'd still have a navigation menu on the side which could list "Forums". That link would take you to the current Forums page which shows all forums.

I think this generates more interest, because you can easily see what others are talking about and join in instead of looking at the forums one at a time...

A good example of this is a gaming forum I belong to

It appears that the Unreal Portal is a custom built bulletin board CMS. We use vBulletin here, so if you can find an example of someone using that I can see if it's possible. Thank you for your suggestion!

vBadvanced free vBulletin add on

Seems this is very similar and free. Also apparently very customizable.

Now I don't know much about setting up forums etc. so I can't really offer advice, but judging by looks this is very similar to what I'm talking about.
