I'll just give my own opinion. There are different purposes of each forum. It is in the administrator on how he/she will take forum and make the it shine. It depends in the peoples interest. If they are rejoicing and enjoying your forum, then your forum seems to be interesting. But on what i have experienced, people are always first looking and considering on the design and the look of the website. If the website is eye catching then, it would be the first step to interact your forum. Then the content will be looked at next. So we can not judge every forum because we have different views and objectives.
