ok I did this.
I'm fiddling with wordpress. Trying to figure out what theme I want, etc. If anyone wants to help, email me (my email is in my profile).
cleaned my room btw. Started building some janky extra shelves for my bookcases.
Honestly I think this is just what you need for now. Put a big link to the forums up top, get a SW artist to redesign the logo later down the track, invite a few people to contribute and you're good to go. Make it better as you go, but for now it's def better than nothing. The little avatar next to posts is a nice look.
