    I posted a thread a while back about getting some help running a site. But in case you didn't see the thread it's a site that's already up and has everything up and running on it. I just don't have the time to run it all.

    I'm looking for someone who can promote, make it grow and overall make it something. I'll invest whatever money needed because I really just want to own something at least semi-big. PM if interested.

    From what I remember it was a drunken night spamming OT when it was open to anyone?

    and do you realize that making a new name when permabanned can result in you getting banned?

    you will be taken more serious if you post a link. It would at least let others know what they are getting into.

    Dude doesn't want to listen to me. I gave him advice, but just doesn't want to take it. A forum geared towards nothing WON'T work these days. Sell it and do something else.

    this is the troof.
    for every 10 SA, OT and 4C members, there are at least 2 who think they can do the same. Thats about 100000 failed forum dreams in the last few years and counting.

    I even know somewhat busy forums and they can barely cover hosting fees.

    Told him that the only way a forum would work is if he did it toward a certain niche, such as forum geared towards a new product coming to the market. Other than that, a forum that is "open" and has "no rules" will not get big.

    why would anyone help you, opposed to starting their own?

    Bant.

    On the topic of growing a general purpose forum; it's still possible, but you will have to grow it from a niche.

    Strange though, of all the things you can invest your time and resources into on the internet, a forum is about 1000ths down the list of ROI.

    Especially since most people who want to put up a forum want to put adsense on it.
