I think there should be forum descriptions added to the forum list on at least the homepage. The names are helpful but a description would be much better because some sections are vague, and with a brand new forum, it makes it difficult for authors to start new discussions in fear of posting in the wrong section.
This forum; 'Meta' is a prime example. Can be very confusing as to what should be posted here to begin with. Perhaps this should be added to make things easier, no?
