Ayan, people sign up for features and advertising. Look at the first few people in the Members list. They all have their website URL in the profiles. A lot of people have signed up here just to get more traffic on their sites. And other people sign up so they can ask their question once then leave.

And I like your web designers idea You should also make a section just for graphics designers. Dark Star would love that

Re: Need Ideas To Improve our Forum

Woo! I just had a great idea! I don't know if it would work though. Well, when this forum was made, a lot of people had awesome names, such as AiM and X-Caliber. A lot of people like those names, and those people haven't been on their accounts for over a year, so I doubt they will go on them again. Maybe you could sort of `auction` off some of the old unused names to people... just an idea, may not work though. And if you're going to do this, just delete the orriginal account to get rid of the post count or delete all posts made by the user then update the post count or something

Re: Need Ideas To Improve our Forum

I think you should have some more hardware based ads, like newegg and etc that you guys might familiar with. People want more help with hardware these days, they want more info on the latest tech and performance. We really should get some professional hardware specialists into this forum. Such as my other forum, hardforum.com dedicated to everything and mainly hardware itself and look at how active the forum is (they get around 250+ active aday). We need more ads, the right ads to bring in more enthusiastic people either looking around for people to help them with a particular thing or enthusiastic enough to help others. Thats my opinion.

If we don't do it right. We'll be dead as gametalkz.com is!

And also can we please reduce the 32 word limit to 20 words?

Re: Need Ideas To Improve our Forum

having adds is a good idea but reducing the character limit will only lead to more spam posts like thank you, welcome etc.

Yeah, I know about the char limit, but the ads are advertising other tech sites which brings away traffic.

Wow.. Lots of good ideas. I'll read each of them once again when I get some free time for more exploration.

Btw. By Tech News I not only means 'News' but other useful articles and Tutorials also. You may use the existing sections to post relevant news, General things can go to the 'Technical Discussions' section. I you feel a\the new of any other categories please post here.

About Ads, the return of investment is very low. I'm spending half of my salary for server costs, can't afford more.
