One vote for a general development forum when traffic at all permits. Keeping the number of forums to a minimum is a superb move, but I honestly think that players of Angband deserve a forum free from developer chit-chat and technical talk. I know I'd be a little intimidated if I just wanna play the game and had to wade through source code and compiler errors.

When one's comfortable talking code, it's hard - but vital - to remember to give players room to just be players. This has always been a problem in the newsgroup, IMHO - development talk drowning out gameplay chat.
