At some point I may get to work on a CMS program to create a dynamic frontpage outside these forums. However, it's not a priority, as the forum can serve every need we have. I tend to want to go the path of Elitist Jerks this time around and keep it forum-based.
Yeah the EJ forums accomplishes everything a fansite could wish for. Besides news or developers post, I don't see a reason for a bunch of fancy shmancy crap. Something simple and effective. We just have to get the word out about the forums and get them populated.
