Been waiting forever too. TBH, the only thing I think Dribbble does is makes you sweat the details, because every little slice of a design has to be good enough to be a Shot. Good in a way, but there's also the fact that it's out of context. Aside from that, you can do more on Forrst.

I 100% agree. They both serve a need. Forrst is more for full conceptual stuff while Dribbble is about perfecting the minutia that separates average visual design from great design.

I think with a Pro membership to Dribbble you can post full screens and organize them into projects, too.

I also feel that the community on Dribbble is of much higher calibre than those on Forrst, so you end up getting the kind of advice that really allows you to progress as a visual designer. There are some great people on Forrst but they are harder to come by.

EDIT: Oh, and you can't forget that Dribbble is kind of like designer bling (read: status symbol for job apps with good studios).
