Best Admin Forum

    I was wondering if you think anotheradminforum.com is better than theadminzone?

    They are both getting the same number of new posts, but TAZ is slowing down a lot. Also they are anti-competitive and read change any links in your PM's etc. The opposite approach is taken by anotheradminforum- they allow competitors signatures and awarded a competitor the forum of the month.

    Which site do you like more, and do you think the open competitive approach is good or bad for a forum?

    Thanks :D

    I am not affiliated with the above site (I have my own admin forum in my sig).

    Not a member of either, but anotheradminforum.com is barely even a forum... 7,000 posts total is nothing.

    But they are growing at the same rate (i.e. they have had roughly the same number of posts over the last month)- I watch my competition :D

    I suppose I am a little biased now- I sold my admin forum to AAF.... and they made me a Global Moderator of the forum :D

    Not a member on ether but I think AdminForums.org is better or http://admintalk.net
    That's just my opinion though

    I choose neither. Anotheradminforum seems like they put another infront of everything and I'll probably get banned off TAZ for owning another admin forum AdminsHut.

    AdminsHut is more of a promotion forum really- but well done on reaching 4900 posts!

    I don't get this comment "Anotheradminforum seems like they put another infront of everything"

    You've already been called out for copying other admin sites, how many of those 8.000 post are real?
    I'm guessing a very small percentage ;)

    looks like a topic to discuss the top forum has turned into advertising, anyways, any forum less than 15k posts isn't considered best by any means
