I know I am new here, and could perhaps get flamed for the idea.. but here goes.
I am currently still on the mirage/lancer forums as I had one of them a while back and even though I have personally owned for in a couple of years I love the forum, the community on there and the layout.. which as it seems uses the same forum layout as OZRS
Now something that I believe works well with them is on the home page of the forum is they have a IM chat.. its great for the quick question, talking crap, and getting the community together. You get to know a few of the boys (and girls) better and its all good fun.
Now I don't know how hard it would to implement here, but just an idea.
Cheers Admin team,
