Hi again!
So, the other day, I made a new forum: link removed
But, there's still no new members except me and my friend. Any ideas? Would anyone here like to sign up?
Thanks Very Happy

Honestly?! No...you need to make ALOT of effort to make your forum appear interesting - you need to invite all your friends and get them posting about the topics

You probably aren't on google yet, and even if you were people won't join if there is nothing interesting on there, people (strangers) won't join an empty forum....besides until it has some content its not going to get 'found' anyway.

Traffic for your forum will come in due time, that is of course if you have read the topics and understood what is required.

Is this problem solved?

ok then go to other gaming sites take some ideas and if you can ask their members to join,dont keep everything on your visible,ask your fb members to join,keep good arcades on your site,keep active mods and keep on updating new features almost every week or two to let others now that your site is the best site ever etc

i would start by having your forum in forumotions directory and or any other online directories you can place it in.

Also set up your facebook options and get your facebook friends and friends of friends involved.

You can also present your forums info here on the promotions board and wait for it's approval, but hey sky is the limit, the more you are able to promote and advertise your forum in various places the more embers you will receive..

But yeah start by having content on the forum, and word of mouth to begin with as well.
Oh it would not hurt to place your forums link in your profile here on support as well.

About updating...
What sort of things are usually updated? You mean like a few new forums each week? Things like that?

You could also advertise your forum on a games forum that you are a member on with the forum link to your signature.
Its worked for my forum I have a two admins that are in europe & USA the memberships can be slow. However have some patience also try to make your skin attractive & forum lay out.
Good Luck Smile

your forum is in the same condition as my forum was.when i created my forum for the first month i was the only user tho i kept on asking my friends to join but then i started going to other websites to spam and troll there and then i use to bring members from their site to my site and now look within 3 months i got over 70 members.
