Just to clarify, this forum is meant to be like the "Hello, my name is . . . " forum on fbtb and not like the "announce" forums on lugnet, right? For instance, announcements of new MOCs, announcements about website updates, announcements about public displays, contests, or other events, belong in various other forums. Is this right? If so, a different name might help avoid confusion.
One other minor issue. Would it be possible to move around the ordering of the groups on the Forum Index screen? The placement of this forum pushes "general Lego" even further down. "General Lego" is the third most popular forum based on post counts, but at least on my screen (which is at 1280x854), you have to scroll down to find this. This is a very minor annoyance, to be sure, but in general you want to put the most commonly used links where they appear prominently upon loading a page. Shifting "General Lego" to the top of the "General" section and dropping "Publishing" down to the bottom of the page (this is really a general topic and not specifically LEGO Castle) would probably shift this forum onto the first screen at most people's resolutions, and still maintain the "Admin", "LEGO Castle", "General" organization of the screen.
