Well, this forum is handled the same way that other Stardock forums based on the same engine, like the Galciv2 forums. What is exaclty bad and confusing? Sure, it may require a bit of practice to be used if you have only experienced PHP based forums.
These forums are a vast improvement over what they replaced this past summer. Also, while they may be ever so slightly non-standard, once you get used to them, you'll find in places they're actually more powerful than phpBB boards you see everywhere else.
There's a lot of custom code that needed to exist to make the forums tie easily into the rest of our community systems. For GalCiv 2, your account ties to your purchase for digital download, forums and the metaverse. If you wander over to those forums you'll often see little images at the bottom of comments indicating various bits of data gleaned from their metaverse account. This sort of integration with our systems wouldn't have been possible with the standard boards out there.
It's confusing at first, but it doesn't take long to learn.
