Hi all, I'm sure I'm not the first person to go off on a rant about their forum not perfoming, but I really am boggled as to what I'm doing wrong. I've bent over backwards to take all sorts of advice from all sorts of people, and tried to refine my site to something which people generally approve of. I've tirelessly tried to built up a healthy amount of links to my site, I've chopped and changed the forum to make it as accessable as possible. I've tried advertising, viral marketing, everything! And still rarely do all my efforts reward me with even one new member! I have about 8 regular posters, out of 230+ members. I'm at a loss, I can only think that maybe it's down to the forum software itseld, and that it is somehow holding me back. I do actually want to move to VB, but there is no conversion software available. So I'm throwing it open to everyone, what am I doing wrong? It's probably right in front of me and I can't see the wood for the trees.
