I just set up a new forum for the Irish community in Australia. In the first week got over a hundred members so its going quite well. The forum itself is still quite basic, I want to ad some advertising space but am still unsure what is the best add on to use. I have had an existing blog with wordpress for the past few months, which is going quite well.
In terms of my forums I basically used my existing Facebook audience to create each sub forum etc. I don't want to have to many at the start as I am afraid some will be empty.
I appreciate any feedback suggestions you guys might have! I am sure you have been using xenforo a lot longer than me. Site is Irish Around Oz
