Hi Tony et al @ Top Consultant,
Congrats on creating and hosting a vibrant consulting community.
In response to a thread below about the functionality / design of the TC message board, have you considered upgrading to one of the 'forum in a box' solutions out there>? These are low-cost (or free) and simple to setup, and all afford site owners good administration options, moderation etc. Admins can set user privaleges, determine whether registration is required (my preference is not to have to register) and 'skin' the forum to fit a brand.
I, for one, would appreciate the opportunity to subscribe to threads I'm interested in, and a better search facility would also help when researching career moves and firms - both of these areas would be addressed by an upgraded forum.
You're onto a winner with the content of this site, but it really is limited in terms of functionality. BTW I'm not affiliated to any webdesign company or vendor of solutions - so have no interest in your improving this board other than wanting a better user experience.
Some common forum software I've used elsewhere:
http://www.phpbb.com/ (free, I believe)
Anyone else know any others out there? Might be good to get a 'wishlist' thread going...
