It would be good to be able to see your original question with traders answers.
IMO, the entire messaging system needs work. The forums in particular. Right now they are too simplistic. There are great pre-made forums like phpBB, so it wouldn’t require too much work to create a decent forum area. We need to be able to quote specific parts of a message (if it can be done now, I missed it), we need sub-categories (place all the systems forums inside a “systems” category), and so on.
