Hello wonderful members of Forum Promotion! If you remember a few months ago, the Editorial Team hosted a weekly interview series for quite a while, we previously interviewed active members and staff members of the community. With my recent promotion, one of my new responsibilities is to get this interview ship sailing once more. The interview series is back, and hopefully better than ever! Rather than trying to release multiple interviews each week, we're going to keep things simple. One entertaining interview will be posted for your enjoyment every Wednesday.

On any internet forum, you'll find that there are a majority of groups that members are sorted in. Each level has its own permissions, but the default group that makes up for most of your numbers is the registered member. I will be covering the different types of usergroups you may come across in your own forum, or another community you happen to visit. Some of you may not have a clear description of what each group is capable of doing in terms of moderation and forum management. This article is designed to provide you with a clear explanation, starting...

This article was first posted on our blog on 01/06/2011. For this reason, the information may be outdated and no longer reliable/correct. The formula for a successful forum is complex. Getting the balance right is an art--too many categories, not enough advertising, too many guests, not enough members. All these things are very important, but I'm sure that everyone would agree with me when I say that your members are the key to your success. Keeping your members happy will mean that they have a higher chance of returning to your forum day after day. This, in turn, creates an...

This article was first posted on our blog on 08/02/2011. For this reason, the information may be outdated and no longer reliable/correct. Every forum owner dreams of his/her community having thousands of members and hundreds of thousands of posts. The reality is that the chance of this actually happening is slim. There are so many well established communities for every subject that you can possibly imagine. These communities have member counts well into the thousands, how are we small forum owners supposed to compete with this? The truth is that we really can't, it often takes years of hard work,...
