Nice job. The the banner only says"Cmo" and there is no immediately recognizable "About" section above the fold. I think you should have a clearly distinguishable mission statement or about page, and still leave one in the footer like you have.
I like the design and you were smart... You didn't just randomly make a lot of empty forums to start out with. You started with 2. That's exactly how I did it and today we're almost at 300,000 post and with almost 5 million views.
