Does this really need to exist? We have a link to the forum in the left menu where this information can be found. SirPoonga 13:28, 7 April 2006 (EDT)

Actually I had 3 reasons to include the article. The first was because I showed my brother this wiki, I explained him the it was part of a website and a forum. He started looking for the "forum" article, I pointed him to the link in the navigation on the left side. His anwer was "I don't want to visit the forum right away, I was interested in what those forums were about." I know this can be found on the forum itself but his reasoning got me thinking to add a community section as umbrella for these topics to the wiki. 2nd reason is to give people pointers to what to expect in each forum, add pointers to FAQs compiled on various topics. Example is the artwork forum section. I also think it is nice to add off-topic forums like "everything else" to the list with perhaps mention of some notable forumgoers ;-) 3rd reason was for completenes sake, I felt the forum is the backbone of the BYOAC community so it deserved a mention in this part of the wiki.
