So okay, given the fact that I used to have a forum back in the day - meaning like two or maybe three years ago - and it was a rousing success - I only deleted because of virus and spam-related issues which I never really figured out how to fix -, I finally decided to create a new one
today. Granted, since I knew my site's bandwidth isn't particularly large, I preferred to create it using one of those free forum servers. And yeah, I actually found one which was pretty good - simple yet effective.
My forum's ready, I "announced" its creation both in my website and
blog, and I managed to lure some friends into it. The most perceptive of you will notice it looks vaguely like James' forum - I was obviously inspired by it, but I think it's different enough so that he doesn't sue me.
The problem then? I just don't have a clue of how to advertise it. I honestly do not remember how I managed to lure 300 or so members to my old forum back in 2005, and finding websites in which to advertise it or finding people who might be interested in it is pretty darn hard. So... does anybody know how in the world I could advertise it? How could I attract people to it? It certainly has potential, I guess I just don't know how to... squeeze it out.
Some help with it - I don't know, if someone wants to be part of it, or if someone wants to moderate it or administrate it with me - would be welcome too. It could be fun.
