i guess the reason anime isn't the main theme in the forum is because there isn't much to discus on anime. also there is the big potential for threads to end up in condtradiction fights for example:
"evangelion rules" says jim
"it sucks" says bob
"no it doesn't" says jim
"yes it does" says bob
you get the picture, i guess what could be useful is if the gallery was made into a forum section, see to be honest i didn't even know there was a galery when i started up, and i don't really go there. but thats just a suggestion that i'll put in the suggestion forum section.
