I am thinking of making up a forum or possibly more and as I am new to doing this I would like to ask you some general questions.

1 - When making up a forum do you have to moderate it ?

2 - if you do, how do you go about getting moderators ?

3 - For a beginner, making up a forum what are some of the “things” that you should have in place
and do in order to succeed ?

4 - What types of forums the most popular and successful ?

5 - This question may be a hard one to answer, but I'll ask it anyway.
What is the average length of time it may take in order for an individual to start reaping the benefits
from a forum even though they may be small at first ?

Thank you Craig

So you're planning on starting up a forum as a money making endeavor?

I'd suggest that you talk with Chris Pirillo: http://chris.pirillo.com/

He used his forums as a stepping stone to bigger things.

Just remember "Once you're at the top, don't forget the people who helped you get there" - that's what happened (IMO) to his forums.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
