I don't post here much. I was checking my e-mail box and I received a PM asking for suggestions, so I'll offer some. * The admin, if he wants this board to work needs to understand the membership of his or her forum. He needs to understand who his regulars are, who his new members are and how they feel about the board. * The admin needs a strategy to get in new posters. The admin needs to do some Search Engine Optimization for this forum. SEO is key for a new forum, absolutely key. Better find out all you can about it, man. * You need content on this board. SOMEBODY better get their ass around to post the days events in a new thread EVERY DAY. * Know when things have gone too far. It seems that there have been some moderators that have been selected, which is good. That will keep the "**** you" comments to a minimum. Don't have so many political attacks that the place just becomes like a chat room where people come in and say "how ya doin, now go **** ya self" and then move on. * Don't let the regulars make extremely rude remarks to new members or they will leave. * Get rid of the front page. Let the forum page be the front page. * You'll probably also have to look around on other boards for people to invite.
