    In this thread we can all share some little tips and tricks for beginners starting out their forums!

    - Keep to a subject, your forum should be about one thing so like minded people join.

    - PLAN PLAN PLAN, draw a design on paper of what you want your style to look like. And then write down the categories you are going to have, on paper it will look really obvious if somethings not right.

    - Stick with a few broad categories and build up on thoes later when the forum becomes more active, otherwise it will look dead.

    - Be Creative and Unique! Design your own skin so you stand out from the crowd.

    - Keep posting in your forum, this keeps it active, even if nobody else is around it still is active and guests will notice and hopefully register and post!
