    Exclamation Get More Users Posting

    Just wondering if any of you have ideas or incentives to get more people posting? This forum has been open for a year and a half and has 7000+ members but less than 30 have made it to 100 posts. The top 5-10 of those do 85% of the posting. Surely we can get more members posting than this so let me here your ideas to make 2009 our best year yet.

    Not sure what you can do to get more posts, but what are the activity ratios like? I mean, do a large percentage of members visit infrequently or maybe they registered and then didn't really stick around?

    Yes, I would say the vast majority have only visited once or twice after registering. We need something to keep people coming back if you have any ideas.

    Re: Get More Users Posting

    Lately I saw a forum with about 100.000 members and only 300.000 posts.
    Only about 3 posts per member, and you must be registrated to see anything.
    So thats not the answer, I tried the same with our babes-forum. Not the result I wanted.
    Many of our new members only visited the Pornvideo/movies forum.

    The reason why I started visiting this forum was when I clicked on a FP log.
    Maybe you need to show more forumcontent on the frontpage??

    In my opinion we shall close this video-section for just registered users and they will be able to get an access when, for example, reach 3-5 posts
    According to my experience-10 posts

    The videos should go in "the babes" forum also under the name of the proper babe. If a thread already exists then just reply, if not create the new thread. The problem with videos is most are not within the 3 minute preview type. They are full scenes taken against the rules of the content owner/model.

    That is why I opened up most of the forums to visitor access and can plug them again on the frontpage. Also, I added a "latest threads" section to the frontpage.

    Re: Get More Users Posting

    Forcing much of the content to be available only to those with higher post counts (a la VIP) is essentially only going to either drive people away (who don't want to bother with the effort it takes to get there) or possibly just increase the number of people who register and crank out 100 posts only to get there and then never post again.

    Internet forum users are odd creatures. It's hard to satisfy them most of the time. For instance, I personally liked the previous theme and forum structure better, but it doesn't drive me away that it was changed. I stay for the great content, but at the same time, there's so many other sites devoted to the subject matter that you're going to find that pooling a lot of users together may be difficult.

    Perhaps advertising in some form (banner ads, etc.) would bring more people, but that would cost you some unspecified monetary amount....

    Re: Get More Users Posting

    Yes we need to be better than those other forums. We need ideas how we can become better than those. I understand that everyone can't be pleased easily but a middle ground should be feasible. As for advertising, I can't advertise this forum because I don't have it up here to make money. It is only here for your (and my) enjoyment. The only reason the ads are at the top is to make the forum more uniform with the rest of the site.

    I understand your point on the VIP and will address that soon.
