I've posted a question to the forum, but it's not even been apporved by the mod yet. There has been no activity on the forums for 3 months now either - What's going on????
If it really is a free and open source project, remove the heavy moderation from the forum and let the users help each other if the admins can't be bothered, and then go in and do some periodic tidying.
You might find the project even gains some support?
