(Except through community)
Just a little usability issue. I couldn't find a link to the forums from the main page, except by going through "community" at the bottom.

    Agree -- it doesn't really fit in with "Privacy" and "Copyright" either. I'd suggest making a community button and sticking it right up there in the main "menu".

    This is the first thing I checked too, and was a bit disappointed to not see an obvious link. Unless of course, we want this to be a super private forum...

    I know it isn't exactly what you are looking for, but the 'new posts' feature is how I always access the forums and that link is prominent on the new site.

    I think we'll probably add a forums link on the main page. The design of the UWE site changed part way through where we added some community stuff to the main page (like the login and the community rules) so I think it also makes sense to have an actual forums link as well. The forums aren't secret though, there's a link to them from the NS, NS2 and Zen sub sites
