    It's 3 weeks old, roughly.
    Threads: 515, Posts: 23,853, Members: 361, Active Members: 361

    Not bad statistics, IMO, for 3 weeks.

    What all I can do for more promotion, etc? I want new faces. I'm sure the girls are getting tired of the same guys leg humping them. :mamoru:

    Any tips?

    Thanks.

    Jusus, thats amazing for a 3 week old forum.

    I think there is too much in your face on the main forum page.
    All that info about the pictures for the gallery is not necessary, especially since it looks like mostly sluts posted the rest is just crap nobody looks at.

    btw, where did you get your initial following from?

    I was wondering about that pic stuff(although it has gotten at least 4 people to join when I was being nosey & seeing where guests were). I kind of agree, though. So take that whole aspect down entirely, or minimize it to just pics showing(no info) or 'sup?


    a really shitty ratings site. staff over there/rules over there are way lame. someone knew i was pretty web/tech savvy, thus they came to me asking about starting a site & voila.

    More on what Krakerjak, I also think there is too much on the "face" of the forum. Possibly the stats at the bottom too. They're cool as hell, but do people actually look at them? :o Unless the forum is jumping with thousands of users like OT, I don't think people would bother. I could be wrong though. :noes:

    Also, this was wierd. Your information box:

    It's like wtf I just posted yesterday. :hsughno:

    The regular users look @ them quite a bit actually. In fact they wanted me to add something in the header file where they can see it wherever they're browsing.


    & about that.. I have it set to display that if you have under 30 posts or haven't posted within the past 7 days.

    I should probably edit that message though. ;x

    and btw, joe.

    click the arrow on the "top 5 stats" thing, and it minimizes it.
