Quoting: Thrash_Metal_Computers@Liam Dawe Its a silly stylistic thing, but in the "Jump to a category" section, some categories are capitalised, while others are not, for example "Tech help" and "Website updates and info" are not capitalised, whilst "Supporter Only Forum" and "Website Bugs and Suggestions" are.

As I said, its a silly stylistic thing, so feel free to ignore it if you feel it is okay.

Aside from that and what others have suggested, these forums are fantastic and I can't find any fault in them.
Sure, minor point but I agree and I like things to match so I've adjusted the Forum naming :)

Awesome, thanks for sorting that.

Another point I was going to suggest was having either an "eSports" category or a dedicated thread on "All Other Chat", so people can discuss the scene surrounding DOTA2, CS:GO, and other Linux native or WINE enabled games. I'm thinking maybe a dedicated thread is better, but just wanted to hear your opinion before I create a thread.

I'm a huge fan of Starcraft 2 and follow the GSL quite closely, so it would be nice to have a chat with similarly interested people. Plus I started watching DOTA2 streams fairly recently.
For that, the all other chat forum would likely do fine. Feel free to start a topic on it but i don't think it really needs a dedicated category though right now.

The links in the forum like "3 days ago" don't appear to work so well, and leads to a 404 page.

Don't know how difficult this would be to implement, but it's something I like from phpBB forums and the like. Namely to be able to selectively quote, and multi-quote more easily, without so much manual fiddling about with tags. For instance you highlight whatever you want to quote in a post, and get an option to make a new post (ofc in draft form). While there, select more text, perhaps from different posts, and it's added in the draft box. Especially the former would be quite nice though, especially when you try to quote from huge posts, but only want to quote the relevant bits. In some forums (not here I think?) people are really lazy and quote half an essay and then reply "I agree" or something, making it a pain to read (which wouldn't be a problem here in fairness due to the cutting off thing of long quotes).

Anyway, being able to selectively quote like that would be quite handy :)

Sorry about that, fixed.

Selective quoting is tricky to do, requires more JS but I will eventually look into it.

Good news! I spent today working on this, it took half a day but it's now live!

Let me know what you think!

Awesome! Thanks. Tried it out in a draft post, and it seems to work well, also with multi-quoting.
