 > the Group Forum slug "forums" sits at domain-com/forums when it should
 really sit somewhere like domain-com/groups/topics or domain-
 com/groups/directory or even stuck right in with the /groups/ page so that
 My Groups and My Topics and the like, would be conveniently on the same

 Maybe. I think the idea is that there would be a time when BP forums would
 not be linked to groups. When and if that happens, it will be convenient
 to have a sitewide forum directory.

 > And in doing so, it also interferes with bbPress right out-of-the-box,
 since bbPress creates a slug domain-com/forums/forum/[forumname] as well
 for it's forums

 I don't think we need to work with bbPress 2.0 right out of the box at the
 moment. We currently ship with bbPress 1.x, which has no such conflicts.
 In the next major version of BP, we will have full (non-conflicting)
 support for bbPress 2.x. If you're running bbPress 2.0 *alongside* or
 *instead of* the integrated bbPress 1.x forums, then you're running a non-
 standard setup, and asking that you change the bbPress default slug is not
 too much to ask.

 > It kinda feels and looks like you guys are trying to turn group topics
 into bbPress.

 Thanks for psychologizing :)

 I take your points about the inconsistent and potentially misleading link
 names and positions. It's worth thinking about how they could be improved
 in the future.
