I get:

Audacity Forum Index page
This Forum is ONLY for problems about downloading or obtaining 1.2 series, or about
it failing to complete installation. ...

After that is a list of all the different forum categories, but the description is somewhat misleading. A first-time user could easily get the wrong idea, and thus miss these great forum posts. :shock:


Yet below that in the result for "Audacity Forum • View forum - Windows" you get "Audacity Forum. For questions, answers and opinions". I would assume this happens because phpBB leaves <meta name="description"> and <meta name="keywords"> in the page source empty (or assumes we will fill those in), so Google generates an arbitrary result. I'll try and look into it or see if Buanzo has any ideas.

Thanks
