    Is there a way to do it?
    It's tough getting people to sign up and post to a forum that's unpopulated.
    I'm able to basically talk to myself via several accounts to make it look active, but the next barrier is the thread view count.

    Any easy solutions?

    You can adjust it by editing the database.

    For example, this database query will add 50 to the view counts of all threads:

    UPDATE xf_thread
    SET view_count = view_count + 50;

    That worked wonders on the view count, thanks Jake.
