Change the forum description

It may help if we direct people to the SF.net site for support/features in the forum description, else some people will be deceived into thinking they can post in this forum and expect a fruitful reply. RTFM, we always say, but people just won't do it.

Say, what the hell is this forum good for now, anyway? Update announcements? Discussing the game engine? Talking about the complexities and implications of implementing a given feature? :?

Besides. As far as I know, we can't change the description for this forum. Thats up to KoolBear. ;)

While Sourceforge is great for bug reports, it has nowhere near the discussion potential of a forum, though that's mostly due to interface.
