More functional forum system

The main forum and the groups forums really need an overhaul. When foldit was younger they functioned fine in the format they have, I imagine, but are woefully outdated at this point. Stickies can't be placed in some (all?) group forums, and the Stickies on the main forum now take up the whole space on "top of the fold". And currently no way to search...
An updated system for the main forum could have sections (such as News - How To - Current Issues - CASP - Everything Else) that would make information much easier to find.
For groups, it would be very valuable to have a more functional setup, especially during CASP. Our current group forum system does not have stickies and does not place posts with new comments at the top, so it's too easy for critical info to get lost. In addition, even as an admin in a group, there is no way to edit a post (yes, there is an edit screen, but the drop down does not list the group).
