Saw this today:
Someone got tired of waiting for a more advanced forum for Drupal and took the bull by the horns and started doing it. There seems to be a contingent of people out there who think Drupal's forum support sucks.
The advanced forum support has not been installed on V. However some people on this site have complained about the existing forum implementation. I have two messages: 1) There is improved forum support coming 'soon', 2) if y'all can explain the desired behavior/look you'd like in the forums, then I can take those desires to the advanced forum project.
