...just cause im curious...how much does it cost to run the other forum?

 

that being said a gaming version of google.

 

We run it on dedicated server so I can add it ... 12$/year appx domain price. Hosting would be free for us since we will host it on our dedicated server itself. 

 

My concern is .. I don't want to work for another empty forum.. if members are not going to use it or it's going to be waist of my time... like RPG ended up. I have xenforo license.. which I plan to sold and use that money for our server hosting charges... I could add phpBB3 forums and that would be free.

I would prefer to see a forum where we could be reviewing stuff.. It could phones, computers, cars, etc. Just reviews about anything and everything where the users will be allowed to post the reviews. Those are the kind of forums which see the maximum activity. Also if we come up with such a forum then we would need a simple, intuitive layout which will be easy to understand for a novice. :)

Well our current members hardly review anything in the blogs or forums.. So that is not gonna happen anytime soon in future either. If I see like 50 reviews in a month it makes sense to open up dedicated forums for it.

I think they are just shy, I wouldn't really take it too harsh or bad when they don't use some features. of course it's bad for you because you are paying for it, But I think members who do use the blogs and other things like this, should promote it, for example say hey come read my blog and tell me what you think! or simply saying: you should start using the blogs they are fun!

It's never too late for members to help out, and not just the server, but with making people feel welcome, and comfortable, people can break out of their shy shells on their own, but it's so much easier when members can communicate  to each other or regulars or visitors if you know what I mean.

It's the same with teamspeak, people just don't connect there on their own, they need some encouragement, that's why the COD4 guys got like 10 or 15 people in their channel almost everyday, they are making people feel welcome.

In my opinion people, not only members but regulars like myself should try to promote some features that don't get used so often, then who knows maybe you  get way too many people using the feature like how the complaint section gets used ;)

History forums, and to be precise, on one history forum (named Historum).

 

Not so active lately, though, kind of losing my interest in it.

08' what? Gallardo? Murcielago? I would assume the latter for a Pseudo-Reventon. Sounds awesome!

Truthfully Dare,  it wont matter what forum name you put on it.  All the threads will get hi-jacked and become some kind of porn crap or something not even

remotely related to the header.

I used to be heavily involved in Bioware's mass effect 3 multiplayer forums (bloodpack for life) and now I spend a good deal of time on the bf3 forums, even if nearly all of the threads are dead.

I am rebuilding a lambo

how exactly can someone rebuild a car worth over a million dollars?

 

if that is not the case, what are you rebuilding? lambos are my thing, i actually have a guy in dartmouth or (i forget) some city in mississippi 

 

if you need a parts guy i really have a guy for you, unless you like paying high5s for parts.

 

my old boss was one of the builders of the veneno, he spent less than half a mill on it (although no records will show that hahahahahahahahahahaha)
