    Site Info:

    Hobbyist is a forum for people to discuss their favourite hobbies and activites. You can talk about anything from video games to science to art etc. We aim to keep the site constantly moderated for a safe experience and make sure that administrators are trained well and know what they are doing. We are also open to suggestions, ideas and improvements to the site. The forum was only created today and despite there being nobody else, we have some ideas and predictions for 2019 which we predict will be the big year for us.

    My site just got probably the highest user account today:
    • 3 Guests
    • 1 Registered Account(Me)
    I cannot wait for this site to start having accounts registered and growing.

    Working on Version 1.0.1 of the website. You won't be able to see it at the moment except for the theme.

    Hi DanS

    Thank you for promoting your Forum here at FP

    Your site looks good how ever I see some issues

    It appears to me currently that everything is Squished to one side of the forum

    you need to organize and set the Forum out a bit better to make it more
    appealing

    it almost like you mess up theme template and it has gone wrong

    Also Get your Self a Domain Name For your forum it will help you get
    your self a better Ranking and make it easier for users to remember

    Have any Questions or need a guide let me know

    All The best with your Forum

    Cheers

    Hello there. I know that the panels are squished and all and I was planning on fixing it in January. I’ll probably do it today instead.

    You are right about the domain but I’m not going to focus on that for the time being.

    Thanks for the reply too. It means a lot.

    Hello there. I've just updated the forum to Version 1.0.2 after the squishing that appeared in Version 1.0.1. It wasn't the theme, just some misplacing of the information panels. I've checked and everything is no longer squished.

    I’m assuming it’s the right. If so, I’ll fix it today.

    I see that Hobbyist is currently in Maintenance Mode. Are you making some big changes to your forum? :)

    Yes it's up for sale. It's free to buy. I don't think I have the skills to run a forum yet but I'd be happy to work for another forum. Besides, I got too stressed with development and barely anyone joined. About half of the accounts are dummies that I made(yes I used the dummy trick). Someone could probably make it a lot better and a lot bigger. You's are free to PM me if you want to buy it.

    There's a forum section for that, if interested :)

    I did see your forum before it was shut... it had potential I must say. From how you were feeling about to though, this must've been your first ever forum unless I'm mistaken. Just take a deep breath, and try again whenever you're fully up for it. No pressure :)

    It wasn't really my first forum. My first forum was called 'RoboCoders' and no one ever joined because I didn't promote it. It was made using the same forum software Hobbyist runs on(CreateAForum) which is just SMF. It did have potential but of course, sometime in the future.

    Your forum opened for me fast enough, I could not log in because I don't have an account yet but from what I see you did worked a lot and made a good job. Good luck and I hope you will get the desired traffic.

    As there has been no reply to this thread in almost a month, and the forum is currently closed as well as @DanS has indicated he has left FP, I will go ahead and close this topic.

    @DanS , if you re-open your forum, please contact a staff member to have this topic moved back.
