    I really like your forum. Excellent skin and colour scheme. Simple but effective.

    Good luck!

    The secret is you have to create a group of people who can help you at the beginning. Hope that helps:)

    Good job, man. What is the correlation between SE traffic and number of posts/threads?

    I haven't looked at that to be honest. I think most part of SE traffic are lurkers, although prospective members.

    It's a good milestone but really your forums is not that popular.

    Total members that have visited the forum in the last 24 hours: 80

    I also see dead forum categories that imho should be removed. Like the Coldfusion and Apache Server subforums.

    But overall it's a nice looking site and hopefully you'll continue to see it grow.

    Congrats,

    10,000 threads is a great milestone. My largest forum reached that years ago. Unfortunately, my motivation has tapered off and it is reflected by the current activity of my forum. Be sure to balance the time you spend on your forum so that you do not get burnt out - because when your motivation stops the forums wheels stop rolling.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Secret is ongoing devotion for it. For me its kind of easy to put time on it, because my work for living is similar.
