It would be great to have a single, cohesive site. Right now, even though the landing page, wiki, and forum are under the same domain (torque3d.org), they are not a single, navigable page. When I go to the forums, I can't get to the wiki easily. When I'm on the wiki, there are no links back to the homepage or the forum.

That's a little tricky because they're completely separate pieces of web software, but that is a good suggestion to at least ensure each as common navigation between each in the header/footer.

Yeah, at the very least we could make sure to link forth and back.

We could put links in the top-bar of all sites, or something similar? So there is a common way to navigate back and forth?

Yes, at the very least, that would help immensely. There should be a common header that can be used on all (sub)sites. I've been doing some research on PHPBB, and it seems that should be possible. I don't know about the wiki, I didn't look into that.

I'd love to help out with some of this, let me know what I can do.

I'm not so sure about the Wiki either, I might be able to hack it in through CSS (no promises) otherwise I can just ask Wikidot if they can do some magic for us.
I can easily implement it on the two other sites if someone designs a top-bar that looks good in all the three sites:

Maybe, if anyone feels like it, someone who can design it can PR it to torque3d.org, then I will attempt to get it in on the other two pages.
