My comment isn't about the forums itself, but rather, the registration process you need to endure in order to post to the forums. It would greatly reduce the frustration if a registrant could check whether his chosen username was "already in use" _before_ he filled out two pages of information. It's tiresome having to continually fill out that info just to be told to start all over again because somebody already chose that username. Obviously, as more people register, this situation is going to become more and more prevalent. I just filled out the bare minimum of info once I realized that I was going to have to repeat the process several times.
wow we take things like that for granted on most sites. Thankfully my name wasnt taked.
