Okay, I havn't been here since Katrina, but here's my feedback for the last 3 years.
The site design is beautiful, but counter productive for the forums. The Forum index page is 3 pages deep on my screen. I think a good forum index should have it all in your face on one page. Even for individual posts, there's all this stuff and buttons and useless features. Rep power? C'mon, this ain't middle school, this is professionals, right?
That's all for now. Peace out, crackers.
