If it looks like the entire site is being moved/revamped/whatever, could we somehow link it to a equipment reviews section (kinda like *gasp* DGCR,) so we can lay down some disc/bag/basket reviews that are linked to our user name? I know that if somebody wants to learn about the PD they can go to the PD thread, but if a user shares a similar throwing style and skill level another user, he could see that users opinion on a series of discs he has reviewed. So if I like to throw everything flat and get distance drivers over 400', I could click on Discspeed's name and pull up all his reviews, etc?
I don't know how much work that is, or if yall are wanting to achieve here, but I think it could be terribly useful.
I'd be willing to help out with this. I'm unemployed, and would love some extra stuff on my portfolio while I'm job hunting.

Can be, but doesn't need to be. The forum's admin section has everything you need to backup the forum database. The cpanel for the hosting account has all the stuff you need for the reviews and whatnot. If either are a problem, if the hosting account includes shell access, mysqldump makes it easy as pie.
I threw Wizards before they were cool.
