Hi, I have just bought a domain and have decided to start a forum. It is related to computers. I am new at this thing so I want your suggestions on how do I run it. I have made categories. But the question is how do I invite people to the forum? I don't want to make fake members or copy other people's stuff. Can you people please tell me. I also then need moderators for the forum. As soon as the forum is launched people who want to become moderators can come forward and I'll be grateful to you.

But the question is how do I invite people to the forum?

By great service, and then word of mouth. Creation of a great forum takes time and a lot of work. There are forums I belong to that have been running for two years that are still struggling to become established in the computer forum landscape.

Advertising, or farming for a site is frowned upon.

I don't want to make fake members or copy other people's stuff.

Good thinking... Posting others information can cost you your reputation. Most computer forums are tightly connected and share information.

Take time to browse the forum Animal links to. They provide a lot of information about the ins and outs of forums.

I wish you well with your forum.

My best,
