Unfortunately, the first thing the user is seeing at this page is the "Status Message"-box.
This gives the user the impression of the need of posting a "Status Message" and he totally forgets about the existance of the Forum-component.
I have seen this a lot with users who are not used to Forums, but merely used to FB only. They just write a status message and maybe also write something into the "About You"-box, but they do not write anything into the Forum itself.
Could you please position the "Status Message" box at the very bottom of the "Personal Account"-page and also position the "About You"-box at the very top of this page?
I strongly feel that this simple change would be more intuitive for the user.
