Do you have a forum rival? When I first started my site, I started it because the forum I moderated before was deleted by the webmaster and we had no place to go. Later on the webmaster created another site, invited us to his new forum and asked me to delete my new site. I refused to delete my site and come back, so did the people I invited to the old forum he deleted. In the past two years he had waged war against my site saying he was going to destroy it and at one point spammed my board's PM system in an attempt to get everyone back but they reported him. Even though we were rivals I did not feel like we were rivals because my site started out as a copyright tutorial and general entertainment forum, his was a Muslim site centered around Desis (East Asians) but he still considered my site competition nonetheless. We shared some of the same members and even moderators in some cases but in the end, I stuck to recruiting members from Social Networking sites to further differentiate the membership base with people who knew nothing about the previous forum and drama etc in an effort to start fresh and two years later I succeeded. His site was also xenforo. I say 'was' because he deleted his site yesterday. So do you have a rival too or used to have one like in my case?
