I have a community website that's just idly sitting by gathering dust while the few members I have slowly retreat into the distance. This was my first attempt at a community website. I come from a programming background so I designed the entire CMS and the site structure myself but perhaps jumped the gun somewhat on a concise topic and area. The site is supposed to be a sandbox for idealist people to discuss their ideas and host debates and discussions with other like-minded people. Back-and-forthing if you will. No topic as such as I leave the debate matter down to the individuals who use it. However I'm having a hard time figuring out how to promote this site as it's so general - but the very nature of my idea is for it to be an open, relatively uncensored environment where the members form the basis of the site culture. However, there aren't many members left, and the ones who are don't seem to be taking an active interest in participating. So I'm struggling with this broken concept. My site has several features which are quite unique such as the ability to retroactively ignore members and content dynamically (which I THOUGHT would give me leverage in promoting this site) but I'm finding promotion to be very difficult in my case. How do I proceed from here?
