From what I've seen, a Forum is made to help build and grow a community. Now I'm sure you're getting enough emails that tell you the forum editor is stale, there's limited options, and I'm 100% sure you're already at work to handle it. However I'd just like to address that to build a community, you'd need to know thy neighbor. The Profile pages are a bit dry, only allowing us to edit our names and add two images, not enough to really get to know a person. I'm not asking for a Facebook profile page, just enough to let people express themselves.
