thanks for your input...
the sidebar content will still be available, just not taking up a third of the page at all times (at least on desktop; it's even less useful on mobile, where it just ends up at the very end of the page).
i plan on writing a small story on the blog to poll the larger community about a forum. even at its best we never really had a ton of activity compared to the blog comments, and that may be even truer today. rather than heavily exhaust resources on a forum nobody wants (if that is in fact the case), we could reallocate them to other aspects of the site to greater effect. but if people really DO want a forum, i'll be happy to go along for the ride.
