No no, suggestions are good!
I'm glad you posted some.
To reply, in order:
1. I will probably set this up, but I might leave the "rules" subforum there just so that it's obvious for anyone looking at the overall forum that there's a big rules section to look at. Also if I need to add anything, but I think I might do the bolded parts of the rules post globally.
2. If someone wants to start up a thread like that, that would be great, or I can! Good idea.
3. Thanks! I think I'm getting a pretty good hang of it, but I will definitely make use of that.
4. Go ahead! The more the merrier!
5. Ah, yes! I'm glad you brought this up. I'm working on a whole bunch of graphics for the site, and when I'm done it will look... monumentally less grey, that's for sure. I'm just trying to finish it all first before implementing it, that way it doesn't look like a huge work in progress mess/so that I don't forget parts of it. No worries, it will look a whole lot less nasty pretty soon!
Hey, no worries, you didn't sound rude at all! It's good that you bring things up instead of just accepting how it is now. Only by bothering the folks in charge can you get anything done!
