Want to be the first to try out the regional forums? Keep reading.
The forums are now considered BETA. What this means is that they are believe to be fully functional, but some small features have not yet been added. There may also be some bugs, which is where you come in. Try it out, see what you think. If you find something that doesn't work, let me know. If there's something you don't like, let me know.
The MyThreads feature is not yet enabled in the regional forums. Other than that, they're pretty good to go.
