    A web page is a web page, a link anchor is a link anchor.
    It's treated just as any other webpage if it's crawled.

    I think I've heard tho that external anchor text counts more than internal anchor text.

    Yes, but it is important to have gool internal anchor texts to help google find out what your site is about. It's always a good practise to link to your home page from each page with your main keyword as anchor.

    My theory is every link counts, so make it as useful as possible.

    I agree, even inbounds help.

    however, make sure your forum is as spider friendly as possible, so you get more pages indexed so the anchor text bonus will be larger

    I concur ! It is always good practice, but internal anchor text is not going to do as much serp wise as external/inbound anchor text will.
