Getting People to Join Up A New Forum

#1
I hope I'm allowed to do this...:cautious:

So I've discovered just how hard it is to get a forum started these past couple days. I'm determined to make it work though 'cause I'm passionate about my topic! :D

Anyways, I found this post exchange program thingy. I don't know if anyone here's heard about it but they have this system where you post on some other forums and earn points that then get people to post on yours. It sounds a lot more complicated than it really is! You also get to screen people based on prior post quality (they have a rating system in place) but then you're cutting down the amount of people that are allowed to contribute to your forum...so I guess it's give an take.

I do think its worth a look though so http://www.postloop.com/invite/kaoticnick <--- affiliate link

http://www.postloop.com/ <--- no affiliate link

I think I get 10 % of your points (at no difference to you) if you use my link or something like that :D

P.S. If I'm not allowed to do this PLEASE don't ban me from this awesome community! :( Just delete this if you have to! :p

My bad! (n) Guess I wasn't the first discover it! :/
Maybe this question is better answered at some kind of admin forum:
http://xenforo.com/community/threads/adminforums-d.16633/
http://xenforo.com/community/threads/adminbb-a-friendly-community-for-forum-administrators.16316/

See what I did there? ;) word of mouth is a great way to attract visitors.
Here are a couple of Postloop threads on my forum:
http://adminbb.org/threads/anyone-using-postloop.1938/
http://adminbb.org/threads/how-do-i-get-my-new-forum-out-there.1834/

And here is the search results for it (alot) http://adminbb.org/search/28543/?q=postloop&o=date You can find Ryan (Postloop Owner) there, and discuss whatever you wish regarding postloop. Good luck!
