Since posting this first Topic, I've done a lot of tweaking with it, and added several things. I've also been compiling various notes on what I hope to add, and I've realized that I'm not really that close to the end of this rough draft.
That really sucks because I really want to move onto other things (Chat Room, Gallery, etc) AND I'm starting to feel very burnt out. My brain feels like it's about to melt down from all the coding I've been doing.
No matter what, I will have to go back and re-code everything from scratch (or at least 90% of everything). I also have many basic things I want added before I consider this "base" project done (the base project would be the user registration/login system and forum).
I'm not sure if I should go back and start adding the things I didn't think about when I started, like multiple domains or the simple thing of closing and opening a topic (that is an easy thing to do, but effects MANY function and sections which makes it more complicated that face value), OR if I should start re-coding everything and add these features as I go.
Honestly, I think I need to step back for a while and clear my head before going on. OR I need to try and work on a more active project with active users who can give real time feedback.
Right now, I really just don't know how to proceed. Hopefully I'll come up with a plan in the near future. But what ever I decide, I will be sure to post something about it.
This has been more for myself than anything else, so take it for what it's worth.
