I do find this forum software a little painful at times.
A couple of things.
a) Emailing my own replies.
When I reply to a forums thread/topic from someone else (or even myself) and select the email me of a replies. It emails me my own reply!!!

Obviously I (or anyone) do not want this I know I have replied. I want to get emails about other people replies to what I have written.
Could we allow attachments to the forum. It would be useful for people that do not want to/cannot/unable upload images to websites. Restrict files to jpegs or txt if you really have too.
Users requesting help will find this much easier.
c) misleading forum details
If I select unread, unanswered, my forums, etc to see the latest threads there is a lack of details there and redundant information
thread last post
You repeat the last person to reply and you don't display what subforum they are in.
That is what most forum software does, shows the subforum and thread starter, doesn't duplicate teh last poster and it makes life a lot easier.
I have used IIS 7 much at all yet so it is mostly pointless me looking at these threads but I do not know from the descriptions if it is IIS (5),6 or 7
I mean you could just install something like vbulletin and life becomes so much easier. :)
