    Trying to get a little forum going, just for fun. Don't plan on making money off it, just trying to fill a gap (all our local motorcycle forums are basically elitist cum-stains :p)..

    What's the best way to go about getting a targetted forum going? Don't want to spam general forums since we mostly just want to get local riders onto it.. and quality members > quantity in this case..

    Ideas? :x:

    at a theater near you!
    local forums, friends/family, flyers in local shops, host an event, local bars.

    also, www.meetup.com might be a decent route to look into. you would be able to make a group, get a following, then shuttle them to your forum.

    :rofl:

    Probably, it's the same host (but different account)..

    Both the hacked site, and this one, are just experiments. For my serious/work stuff, I have a dedicated server. I just don't like playing with open source scripts on my primary server, for that EXACT reason, so I get cheap shared hosting accounts to mess with smaller projects.
