---- Is it smart to have Forums on an Ecommerce site?

A site selling simple buy-and-done commodities would have no use for a forum.
Directly, no. :) I would respectfully disagree. I've just come over from my own little forum, wiki, blob spot and left 20 visitors lurking about. It's 1:00 am, and they all aren't shopping on my buy-and-done part of the site. Beats me what they're up to, but I don't mind the extra traffic one bit. You made a good point about delegation. I have managed to draw in a few trusted people to assist with the management of that part of the site. It's still way too soon to say if this will be a success or a huge wasted effort. I'm optimistic.
