V4L forum gets a new look

This is a guest blog post by Morandir. About November of last year the V4L forum started having a lot of loading issues (not to mention other problems). By December it became almost impossible to post from a computer due to all the lag, and it only got worse from there. On the 19th of that month though everything changed.
