One more thought for today: HubPages already has topical forums for almost every subject. Is it possible to move the associated forums over to the niche sites as they are created?
A niche site on a specific topic would be wise to have a forum attached to it, no? Forums attract recurring readers and participants, many of whom will also read Hubs. Hubbers who write on those topics can participate in the forums offering advice and interacting with visitors. Many people will join the sites just to participate in the forums and never even write a Hub. Little communities will develop. Fresh content daily. More search traffic. Etc.
Maybe this is something planned for the future but I thought it worth mentioning. It would be really nice if the HP topic forums were actually useful for people who aren't into political and religious ranting.

Now that the niche sites are up and running, wouldn't it be a good idea to add a "Forum" menu item on each site to link to the relevant topic forums on HubPages? (maybe there is a link already, but I can't find it).
