None What am I doing wrong?

Post by Regice on Sun Jul 04, 2010 10:11 am

I try my very best to provide a fun, and friendly community. I am having a lot of trouble getting and keeping active members, and even looking for staff is leading to only dead ends. If people don't even want to be staff at your forum, then I'm sure something is terribly wrong, so please help me figure out what is so wrong with my forum.

lol. Sorry. www.downtowntokyo.co.cc is the link to the portal, and http://downtowntokyo.co.cc/index/ is the link to the forum itself.

I think some color could be added, and yes add some anime to the forum. Then all you would need to do is advertise.

well, I have had a look, you have 70 odd members, so you must not be too hard on yourself.

Keep persevering, and promoting.

re mods, if you feel that they can bring talent to your board then it is a shame they do not accept, however too many people promote to mod as a cheap way of having a captive paid posters, make the distinction before you invite.

Now take a look: I removed the custom cursor, changed the default theme, added a fitting banner to match the genre of the forum, and removed the automatic music player on the main page. Personally I feel the theme is a bit much, but it is definitely better than the plain white theme I was using.

Great improvements, the theme is much better. You could also try a different navigation bar. It's a bit plain.

I've always had a theme changer. If you use the default theme, and hover over the navigation bar, like where you see "search" "members" "faq" etc. then you will hear a little tune, should I keep it, or is it something that annoys you or will annoy you really quickly?

It looks good, but the problem is, i don't know what theme you changed, is it named as Anime? cause Its hard to criticize your forum, not knowing the real theme XD, and also I would like to suggest if you could make another banner ^_^
