Getting the First Few Members to Your Forum - General Discussion
I just created a website with vanilla forums - great software btw, I'm really happy with the results - and Vanilla seems to be 5x better than any other open-source software out there!
Now though I'm having some trouble attracting my first few members people are quite hesitant to join it seems, which makes sense I suppose. I am usually hesitant myself too, especially in the past.
None of my 'real-life' friends use forums at all - so I'm pretty much alone on there as far as active members go. I was hoping to start a general discussion for someone in my position - what you guys tried in the past - what worked? - what didn't?
