To better integrate the community into the rest of the site, I've added a small Login and messages bar at the top of the website. So if you need an alternate place to talk to someone besides YouTube or your email, you can. You can also launch into latest forum posts here as well.
Also, I've tried to make registration to the forums easier while still providing ample spambot protection. The questions are still up, but I added a link to an answer sheet that provides the answers to all the questions that the registration form will throw at you.
