The forum should be made through a PHPbb feature, but unfortunately, I don't 
know PHP at all.

I believe, that all OpenSource Linux servers support this feature.

What fd.o account is? (is that a wiki account, or something else?)

I think, that our new website must be more like "emotionware", I mean that it 
must be very intuitive to navigate, and be accessible for people who don't 
understand english (and those who doesn't like to read :), which are many 
surfers on the internet ).

We should take this idea:

OpenClipart preview: Added on 8.4.2004.

But rework it that way, so upload, browsing buttons and download buttons are 
understood by every idiot out there, who even mistakenly entered our site.
Download button must be beauty graphical image of say- insect, or car + small 
arrow in diagonal to down. For upload the same image but with arrow looking in 
diagonal up.

If our site is able to deliver the "woow" effect, when looked at first glance,
then we completed our goal. We will be able to attract new contributors 
easily, and our project will be in motion. 

Delivering the "woow" effect, even to non-english speakers is mission-critical.
