I don't know that the membership wants a lot of personalized functionalities. Personally (!) I hate all the buddy facebookish stuff and would not want to take part in a facebookish discussion group. I don't have a lot of time to spend on the web, which doesn't particularly attract me, generally speaking. The forum, as it stands, allows anyone who has something to say to get on the soapbox and say it. It is efficient.
