Forum Pruning

I pruned some really really old threads about a year ago (stuff that was dead since 2003). I switch around the forums every now and then trying to optimize so people will actually get active.

The forums actually have a lot of visitors (between 2-3,000 page views daily), so that means that most people are lurkers and don’t post. That’s why I’m doing the contests and other promotions to get people to sign up. I’m also putting out new content and news every day, and a percentage of that traffic always spills over onto the forums.


Kudos for taking an interest. You’ve lit the spark… does anyone have any kindling?

I’m open to suggestions… is there a way the forums should be organized to get people active?
