Currently there really isn't much to post here. Is there anyway we can have some more boards, like general chat, html help, introductions, etc...
That would actually be a good idea. This forum is not very active as of now...
Yep, beause there is nothing to post about. BTW: I think the site is amazing, great job.
please, suggest as much i you can!! I love ideas!
ok, boards to add:
the past attemt to put a "general chat" board kinda didnt work... so i assume ppl are here just for identifying and looking for fonts... so that's why i didnt bother with other boards.
suggest a board and ill add it and make you the moderator.
what do you think guys?
That sounds great. I have to go to work but when I come back I will post a lot of suggestions.
i won't add anything till then...
I'll think up a few suggestions...
We should have a general off-topic section. I can't think of a creative name for a font site, but my board uses "Madness", another uses "Water Cooler", others simply use "Off-Topic".
I can't think of much more right now...
so we need a board for programming which would include HTML, PHP and MYSQL...
something like "Development", "Coding", "Programming".. sounds a little dry and cliche but at least ppl have idea what we're talking about...
the problem i think is still there that people are looking for help with fuinding fonts... i hope they will start participating more actively
any suggestions are welcome.
thorn and/or paul, give me names of the boards that you would like to administer and i will review the submission

[b:c7e13a5ecb]Site Promotion and Commerce[/b:c7e13a5ecb]
Talk about CPC, CPA, CPM and other affiliate programs.
Ask questions about setting up your own online store.
Exchange links with web sites similar to yours.
Ask questions about submitting to search engines.
That's just a couple things I came up with from the top of my head. Feel free to add to it. If you want me to moderate I am very good with most of the areas in Site Development.
Yeah, it seems weird that you have over 400 members and almost nobody posts. You as the administrator only have 130 posts, on my board I have 250 members and me and another member have over 1,000 each.
what do you think guys? [/quote:2b3f319dca]
Well, most of the members come and ask for a font identification, and then leave after they are satisfied. The others have probably forgotten about the board...
The Invader Zim board I post at has 1,526 members and 128,798 posts. My board has 30 members and 2120 posts.
This site obviously gets traffic, we just need to attract people to the forums.

Excatly. This is why we need more boards. Currently it's really boaring to be here as there is nothing to post about. Also, to remind all the people about this place you can send a newsletter to all the members.
Yea, thats a good idea... i was planning on it.
I am off to study for my finals at the university right now, but i will get to the boards creation tonight... late tonight
thanks Paul for the detailed post
I missed that post, I don't know how that happened. It was so long... Good job on the forum names! I hope we can have a more active community...
The forums Paul mentioned reminds me of tutorialforums'...
thorn, do you have a forum that you would like to moderate?
im gonna give Paul the Site Development ones since he's good at it.
Hmm, I'm not sure what I'd like to moderate. I can't say I'm really good in any of those topics... possibly I could do something in Site Promotion and Commerce?
as syou can see over a couple of days there were no posts in the site development section.. so i have doubts that the promotion section will be any better...
the fonts section is pretty active though.. i like that a lot

Maybe you should send out a newsletter to all the people as many of the people that were around here a long time ago left and forgot about these forums.
Maybe you should have a board where people can share how they became fontaholic and stuff?
