      Giving your forum members something to remember really seems to be the kicker. A lot of my members started flocking over to a board that was up years ago that many of us had first started our foruming days on. We had some good memories over there, and a lot of the group stayed together forum death after forum death. We're all currently at my forum. However, the very first forum just opened back up on an Ikonboard (LMFAO) and a lot of members just flocked back. The board software is absolute crap. The admin doesn't care about the site. None of the old posts are back. It's not even on the same domain anymore.. But the fact is everyone started rushing back just because of the memories... (Won't last long - because the admin doesn't care, much of the board is already a spam wasteland)

      But I guess the moral is make sure your members have fun, and give them a good experience.

      So that's why IDN's forums don't get very big.. ! I see.

      Great guy at; nazi on his sites.

      No that's actually not it, I just saw the opportunity to make a nubbins-like bashing and jumped on it.
