Sure, the new forums (new to me anyway) are great, but I miss the old look and feel of the HTML Goodies board. Why not at least use the same color scheme (It could at least be an option to change it to that)? You might also consider (since you do use SSI for the menu anyway) having the forum launch, not as a new window, but as another part of the HTML Goodies site. It would include the menu, logo, and evrything else the other pages have. Just my thoughts.
