    Hey all.
    I recently bought http://discusshq.com/ back and started on making a new dark theme which is up on display now.

    Just wondering since it's a new forum what would the best method be for advertising now?
    Any ideas? Please post them, thanks.

    Have you tried inviting family and friends to get things started? Social Media is a good way to get your name out or even putting a link in you forum signature on other forums (providing it's not against there rules)

    It looks great. Try twitter and post on other forums that allow having a signature.

    How exactly is the 'using video' one? Did you mean use video marketing on Youtube, or what?

    i will advise that you invest heavily on social media. create social media pages like Facebook groups/pages, YouTube channels, twitter profiles, instagram profiles etc and in your description, state the benefits of them joining and registering in your forum. To get more traffic visitors, you can buy Facebook ads and get targeted traffic. same goes for YouTube and others as well. Aside this social media, you can also create high PR backlinks from high authority sites too. with time, you will start getting traffic and hence users to your forum.

    Just tried to look at your site, says its under maintenance.

    This is a very good way of getting your backlinks up, especially good if the forums you are posting on are relevant to your site.
