I've been a long time mwForum user, a forum written in Perl that follows simplicity principles (unlike more mainstream forums such as vB, phpBB, SMF, ikon, IPB). Here's my first impressions of RForum: * The list of forums in the left-hand side of the screen seems like a waste of screen space. It's also hard to read because the lines are wrapped like this: Rails Engines Rails Spinoffs Rails France so it's hard to tell where the name of one forum begins and the name of the next one ends. * The <textarea> that I am currently typing in makes the screen too wide, such that a horizontal scrollbar appears in 800x600 resolution. (There'd be enough room if there wasn't that list of forums in the left-hand side.) * A checkbox below the "Submit" button in the form I'm typing that allows me to set e-mail notification would be nice. * Why are the visited and unvisited link colors forced to be the same? This makes it harder for me to tell which topics I've already read.
