    How do you come up with a topic for a forum and make it prosper? I want to make a forum using this software but I am having trouble finding a unique topic that will also help my forum stay alive and not be buried thanks to all those bigger and more well-known forums.

    What do you know the most about? What interests are you passionate about? Start from there. (y)

    GFX (I LOVE gfx), Some games like Minecraft. I ran a GFX site once and it had a good run but I had to close it down thanks to it slowly dying... Now let's say I do make another GFX how would I make it stand out?

    Do you mean you're trying to find a niche within a topic that would differentiate you from the competition?

    Yes, basically. Or how to make a common topic POP. Also I noticed one of the biggest GFX sites, GFX Forums uses XenForo. :p
