You've possibly made it a category.

Here's a little guide on the setup

In forum management make a new forum.

Type: category
No parent.

Then make another forum.
Type:forum
Parent: the category you just made.

No, you have that funday bit as a category when (I think) you want it to be a forum.

Just take your time and go through all of the forums and categories and be sure you know which you want to be which and how they relate to each other.
