A couple of suggstions:
In the AHA Messages, Forum Rules & FAQs, there's 9 (and growing) sticky messages right at the top. Maybe it's time to split this into an AHA messages section and a Forum Rules and FAQs section?
Include the menu bar at the bottom of the page, so people don't have to scroll back up to click the link to go up the menu. You know, this thing:
Homebrewers Association | AHA Forum >Admin >Questions about the forum? >Start new topic
I don't know if the software gives you that kind of flexibility, but it'd be nice.
