I don't think that care guides are the way to make utah fishkeepers grow. I was told just to make care guides on the admin zone before they decided to ban me.
That's why you have to make it look active. People have been creating alternate accounts for years and posting to make their site look active in the beginning to attract new members. People have offered solid advice to help get your community going but it feels like no matter what advice is offered you shoot it down. Quite a few of the people that gave you advice have large boards that have put tons of work in to grow their communities. It takes alot of work to grow one. Especially sites that are geared towards a certain topic or a certain area of a country. I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss most of the advice given to you.I am not going to create fake accounts, and it is hard to post when the site is dead. I will put some flyers at the LFS next time i'm there and hopefully that will boost traffic.
Allowing image uploads up to 15mb is fine as long as they're resized down to reasonable sizes specified in the ACP though right?Also, I'd limit the size of photos that are allowed on your site. 3+Mb photos slow loading way down.
