That would be very interesting.
I'd say go for it!
I like the sound of the new sectors too.
The fanfiction will really let the fans get a chance to share their ideas with others.
Is there any way there could be a member list on the member's page along with a counter that shows the total number of members here on the forums? The member list could also be where you could access other member profiles, I guess. Just a thought. Might make the forums more user friendly.
