    For a new site I think you have too many forums.

      Firstly, they dont allow direct advertising of boards on these forums.
      Having your vB URL in your signature is fine.

      Secondly i also think you have too many forums, disable a few and enable them again once your board becomes more active...

          What kind of promotion have you done for your forum? If not yet, then why don't you find some useful directories and post about your forum, a good description about it might help to get some contributors. Do not get panic, it will grow gradually. Just do your work honestly. And try to find out what others are doing.

            Ive done some amount of advertising so far I'll be able to write a book soon on how to advertise your site.

            Im making bebo skins for people but they also have to have at least ten posts before i will give it to them by ten posts there hooked anyway the skins have my site address on them two.

            Search engines, Link exchanges im even thiking about advertising on the local radio.

            Bebo is a good one all you have to offer people is the release date to some concert on you bebo page and a link back to your site. simple its working to when I started doing this the most ever members online was 290 and thats before setting the cookie time for longer logins.

                  Hey BarryoBrien,

                  That's a great amount of work you are doing.

                  I specially like the skin one. That's catchy enough with only 10 posts! ATB

                      Didn't get you.

                      Could you please explain it? So I can be careful about it next time while posting.

                      Thanks in advance.
