We already have a forum, the appdb.  

I think it just needs some work to make what we have, better so that it
actually looks like a forum, as I elaborated on in this post here

It's just a matter of some modification to create a better user interface,
there's no need to create a new forum, just change how we can view and
interact with the existing data.
