Have you ever had a successful forum? How many members it had? How long have you worked on it? How long it took for it to come to life? Very Happy 

Is it worth to post @promotion forums or they generate no new members, posts, content?  alien

I did. It was actually made by a friend, he has a lot of connections, making our forum popular everywhere. It was only a simple forum, we made it on one day. I think we had 5k members then... unfortunately, after two years of an active forum, my friend gone to vacation like 4 months, that's when the forum died.

We were partners of a radio station, it is dead now too. We only promoted it on some forums and on facebook. The forum though, its goal is not that reasonable, my friend made some codes to exploit games, maybe the reason it attracted peoples. Smile

Basically his job is to make the 'hacks', and mine is to improve the forum. It was a tough job, that kind of forum makes lots of enemies, many tried to take down our forum. We managed, I asked friends to help me defend the forum. Very Happy

Nah, not really. But my current forum is like a Phoenix ; it dies and rises again. Hopefully this time I can keep it going. Razz

Well, I know a friend who had a really successful forum and it's still active to this day with 863 registered users (Although some are alts). It was started a few years ago from what I remember her telling me... either 3 or 2, although it could be going on 4.

Her and I did start another forum sometime in September although it's not as active yet... and is actually kinda dead at the moment, whoops. '^^

Thanks for sharing your stories. Very Happy

@Terran, that's unbelievable! I would think 5k members can generate content and activity even when the admin is gone for a period. Shocked Revive it! Very Happy 

@Ange Tuteur, since you quitted from your Forumotion support job I think many people will follow you and join your forum and it will shine. You provide many great features and extras that will lure many members! Very Happy And you're a Forumotion celebrity, so that's a plus point too. :'D

@Kfalash, good luck with your new forum! Very Happy 


I had only 1 forum before and it was for the local players of a game, basically like a clan forum, so it wasn't to big. We lost many members, due to moving from one forum to another, till we found Forumotion and settled. Aand the game shut down, so our forum died with it. Sad end.

Hmm thats a complicated question. scratch But my forum looks like a switch or binary enumeration system (0/1) sometimes is up and sometimes is down. Very Happy
