Sorry, just saw it linked to at the bottom of the Popular Threads column and didn't pay attention to the separator. I just meant conventional forums rather than like the comments section; like one of the traditional pre-fab types like vBulletin - something that could be added as a separate entity. These forums just don't really strike me as being like... forums.
Look at the All Forums link from the masthead menu, that's a pretty traditional list of forums, but as Bucky observed, they're not very active (yet?). Sure they look a bit different from vBulletin, but basic functionality is the same and those big systems just have more bells and whistles.

We prefer these forums to be integrated with the rest of the board system, rather than a completely disjoint off-the-shelf forum system like phpBB et all. There are several reasons for that, an important technical one being that the entire site is built in Perl with Apache/mod_perl geared towards that, and I don't want to throw a PHP-wrench into the works.

So if you have any forum enhancement suggestions that haven't been mentioned earlier before in this thread, let's hear it; but a complete switch to another system is not an option.
