Yes I like it too! Kind of a mix between regular forum and DRC University.
Nicely done! Good

Yeah, it's great. It's more defined now so it makes it easier to find things.

One thing I will have to ask everyone:

Right now the page URLs are no longer in the form of viewtopic.php?t=<topic> as you noticed, instead the URL is the "topic-title.html". I modded the forum to fool search engines into thinking topics are static webpages rather than php scripts. Search engines like google don't like URLs that have a "?" in them and ommit them in search results, since "?" signifies a dynamic (i.e. page that has changing content) page. This will allow our forum to come up in searches.

Point: important thing to remember that pages and page titles will get cached by the search engines, therefore avoid non-informative ("watch this","nice website") or lame ("rofl","hahah","this is gay","!!!") topic titles. Try to describe the content of the post in the topic using maximum number of keywords.

Example: post contains a link to a video of a dancing robot designed in MIT.
Bad topic names:
- freaky robot
- robot video
- check this out
- nice video
- MIT robot
- interesting robot

Good topic names:
- dancing MIT robot video
- Video: dancing robot (MIT design)

Basically, when you name a topic, remember it will be cached by search engines for months, and forever by "web.archive.org". Use keywords intelligently when naming topics, so that people come via search engines.

OK. So basically you've made google hit the forum more and you don't want us to post stupid topic names, I can live with that. Very happy
