Where do you advertise?

Hi All,

So I have a new forum that I am having a hard time promoting. It's a forum that offers users a chance to discuss game server providers, learn more about the industry, and review their current providers. Sort of like the WebHostingTalk for game servers. But, it's tough to find places to post about your forum without getting banned for advertising. So, where do you guys promote your forums? Do you just let it gain traction organically or do you find other related sites to post on?

Thanks for any feedback you may have!
In the same position bud, I'm admin on a PS3 gaming site. There is alot of competition out there, and gaining and keeping quality members is hard. We've tried flyers, advertising on official forums. With some luck, since we have moved over to Xenforo our site is more active, but gaining more members is very hard. Word or mouth seems to be the best way. Get one popular member the he/she spreads the word. good luck and if you find the answer pm me please ;)
