A few years back @Chris D built an add-on for my forum, which adds a tab in members' profiles, and each member can go add pins with past and future trips:
Unfortunately a few months ago this add-on stopped working, and at...
Thanks for the feedback. I definitely wouldn't focus solely on the monetization, there are many aspects that make a community successful, and unless monetization is done properly it often has, as you point out, the opposite effect.
Nice report. I ran my own and here's what I came up with.
Last 6 months, xenforo traffic:
Same 6 months, wordpress traffic:
Obviously for me these numbers are completely different because my forum has been around for 13 years and has over half a million posts, but my wordpress has only...
Thanks for the suggestion - I think I would probably lean towards creating a course first and see if it actually provides value to people, and if that goes well then perhaps think about expanding that to a wider implementation.
I know plenty of people that created new forums the past few years and went on to become very successful. The world is moving a lot faster than it did 20 years ago, and there are new areas/niches being created all the time, mostly due to new technological advancements.

Yes that was my initial thought as well, given I have no exposure to running corporate communities with hundreds of thousands of dollars budget etc.
My background is more around the smaller communities that are either starting out or are sort of established but have not made that next step in...
An amount that allows the owner to work on the forum as a full time job.
Thanks for pointing this out, I'm only at the research phase so it's good to know what else is out there, and how something new may compliment existing stuff or offer something different. The FeverBee website looks very...
I guess that would be part of the course pitch if I went ahead with it, but since you're asking I can try to answer this now in a few words. :)
I've been working on forums since 2002 and through that time I've worked on more than 60 communities, to help customise them, or market and monetise...
I have lots of members that create an album and for some reason then leave it empty, so I have lots and lots of empty albums that I'd like to delete in bulk.
I haven't found any tool in the admin to do that, so I am wondering if there is a query I could run instead on the database?
I have 280,000 images and just use an OVH server that @Brent W setup for me, and it just works fine, no issues with the images at all.
I don't think you need to worry for 100k images, even if you use aws the cost will be extremely low.
I'm thinking about creating an online course teaching forum owners (and aspiring owners) how to create successful and profitable communities through planning, building, growing, and monetising their forums.
Would anyone be interested in something like this?
