I’m a little hesitant to add Forums to Brickbuildr, simply because it invites all kind of hacking, but it is a good tool for communication. I’ve set up two discussion areas “Community” and “Pick-a-Brick” — very generic topics. If discussions pick up, I can add more discussion areas in the future.
I’ve resisted doing Forums in the past because of the complexity in coding it myself, the hack-ability that I’ve seen with other fans sites, and if further fragments the community… So bottom line, this is an experiment. If it takes of and is successful, great, otherwise if it starts to become a problem, I don’t mind dropping it and going back to being a web-site that’s more utilitarian in nature.
