i am new to the board - and i must admitn that the usabilty is not so good
Can you elaborate a bit? I find the PM forums a lot clearer than most boards I've used, because it has threads - and message boards without threads are useless for discussions. Also, unlike devshed, it doesn't allow people to fill up screen space with useless avatars so we can all concentrate on what's being said.

Update: I have no idea what http://Dainweb.com is, and I can't find the forums since I can't read Chinese.

    I think you hit one usability feature on the head here! The basically spartan interface of Perlmonks is perhaps one of its best features. Putting statistics, rankings and avatars in the threads makes them far harder to read and follow. The content intensive design of the Monastery is one of its great features.
