I think forums in the format we have here are outdated. I prefer a Q&A format with tags.
I agree with Mariette that a newer and more powerful interface would be more useful (and usable) that our "old" forums. Something like Q&A like www.dnnsoftware.com/answers or Stackoverflow, for instance.
I don't think I agree.
I do think the forum could be improved but IMO this forum server it's purpose ATM and there are other areas of this website that need more attention than this part. (with the somewhat limited resources available).
Also Q&A cannot fully replace forums IMO and having 2 kind of modules also didn't work well in the past IMO.
There was a group of users that focussed on q&a and some focussed on the forums, which kind of split the "DNN Community Helpdesk" in two in my experience.
BTW I do think we need more open questions / discussion in the forums (of which a part is still done on facebook).
Quesions like "What kind of issues did you experience with x" or "How can we improve y".
I think kind of discussions would be good to get more community feedback and that's better out in the open than in "closed / not indexed environments " like Slack or Facebook.
