11 Ways to Not have a Successful Forum


You need to make a forum on something you like and you can't give up on it just because no one is joining - that is no reason to give up on a forum.


If I had to choose one from the list I would say music. Try to make a forum that has music discussion, post videos from YouTube for the songs, etc.

Done that.

+ I made all boards mems.
Because all people do is steal my hacks/cheats ETC and post it on there site.
They must register.

And if they never posted in 30 days - there account is deleted.

Hate ppl who do that.

^^ unsuccessful forum reason.

If you make all boards for members, how will they know what's on your forum? Or why they should register? And if they're a member can't they STILL steal your cheats/hacks or whatever?

Also deleting accounts that haven't posted in 30 days might be a bad idea as well. Even though they don't come back some people look at how many members you have on your forum, the higher the number the more interesting it looks ;)

Just my opinion

So if you deleted them it would only appear that you had 3 members... not appealing ;)
