Will there be any synergy between this place and hostingdiscussion or do you plan to keep them seperate?
I don't see it as an option that would make a lot of sense. Both communities have different characters, charm and specialties. I'd hate to spoil that.

Btw, do you have any technical plans about TF like new systems, site etc. ?
Definitely not dark and cold. In fact, I want to brighten things up a bit, create more breathing room and space (feels a bit cluttered), with focus on content, not bright graphical elements of the site.
As far as "new systems", in the long-term, yes, there are some ideas, among which is a crowdsourcing contest-like marketplace, social/professional applications and tools of some sort that can help webmasters and designers manage their skills and maximize income, but its way too early to tell. We will see how the forum performs in the next 10-12 months. There is lots of basic work ahead as it is.
