Interested in how important this is to people. Not really colour schemes - more navigation. I have a couple of forums (one running off ezboard and another using vbulletin lite (currently developing with vb 2.0) and have a good level of consistency with colour and feel - and there are links back to the index page of the "parent" site - but no "real" navigation (as seen on Sitepointforums - but not on this subforum)

How important do peeps think it is to have "genuine" navigation, verses a "subsite" type model?
