Hi,

Things to do:
  • Make your forum stand out - if it's just like the 1000 other "general chat" forums, it won't grow very much.
  • Customise the design - if your forum is already nothing special and it looks like all others, same thing will happen as above Very Happy
  • Advertise it - search engines, directories (http://www.forum-forum.com for example), website reviews forums (yes, shameless way, but it is a way to get a few more visitors Very Happy)

There are a lot more, but that's all I can think of now... Smile
