So.. I just wanted to give a few tips about the forum that the staff may have not thought of.

1. First of all, the groups(such as moderator, assistant administrator, etc) are open groups(they shouldn't be). Which means that people can request membership in the groups. This isn't a big issue, but most forums have it closed, because you will just get a lot of unnecessary spam. Basically, you should make the user-groups closed groups, so the members only can join the group upon invitations from a group leader.

2. Most of the staff is inactive, which you guys are fixing with the PMs and stuff, still you should maybe try to make people EARN the staff positions. This will aslo motivate more people to be active, because they know that they can get staff if they participate on the forum. Right now you don't need a lot of staff. And if you give a staff position to people, just because you like them, the whole staff position could quickly lose it's value. Currently 4 users on this forum has above 10 posts. 3 of them are staff. This means that 75% of the active members are staff members. I think my point have been proven.

3. This leads me to my next point. The forum needs more members. When I had just made my forum, I sent PMs to random people on DD asking them to join my forum. Believe it or not, a bunch of people joined the forum. And it was active for a while. PM-whoring isn't allowed, though, and could get you banned. I didn't get a single warning, but what ever. My point is that you should advertize. You guys will figure out ways to get more members soon.

So yeah.. Just thought I'd share this with you guys. I really enjoy this forum, and it would be cool if it sucseeded Smile I'd be happy to help with whatever you'd like me to.

I quite agree with your "earn a staff position" part. Rather, most people who are registered here are staff.

I remember that method, you should also make us a picture with a link, so that we can advertise the forum through our signatures

Yeah, in the signature we could use the banner of this site, but I think it might be a bit too large.
