Forums posters wanted, get free advertising!
I've got a relatively new forum up and running:
It's mostly empty at the moment, aside from a few posts I have made, plus some articles posted via an RSS feed.
In order to get it jump-started, I've come up with this idea:
Sign up, log in, and post. Once you reach 25 posts, you can have a text link or 88x31 graphic displayed on the main "portal" page. Once you reach 50 posts, you can have a site-wide 468x60 banner that will be displayed on the footer of every page. There are other ads that are displayed in those areas, so your ads will be in rotation with those. Your ads will run for 3 months, and stats can be provided by phpAdsNew.
If you reach 100 posts, you can have a permanent text link placed on the "links" page.
This site has been submitted to all of the major search engines, plus has been submitted to over 100 "directory" sites. GoogleBot, AskJeeves, Alexa and Inktomi visit the site daily. The site currently averages 21 visitors per day, and has had 36 unique visitors since July 1st.
1. Your posts have to be on topic for the forum they're posted in, and a "I agree" or "LOL!" post won't cut it.
2. Your ads will not be for any adult, offensive, hate, violence or illegal activity related sites.
Once you've posted, PM me on THIS site so I can keep track.
Also, if/when this site takes off, I will be looking for moderators/administrators.

cool it looks nice . I think the conditions aren't that hard any most people will be interested but in order to make the forum grow then as an owner of the forum/admin you have to be online most of the time and answer to posts/threads. That would help a lot.█ For Reliable and Affordable Web Hosting Packages, Please visit kooshin.com

C'mon, people, we need more people posting on there!
I've lowered the number of posts a little.
20 posts -> 88x31 banner on the front page (in rotation)
35 posts -> 468x60 banner on all pages (in rotation)
50 posts -> permanant link on the "links" page
After this past Google update, the site is now PR3, has 13 members, 29 threads and 148 posts, averages about 49 visitors per day and has had 339 unique visitors since the beginning of July.
Who doesn't want free advertising? All you need to do is spend a few minutes every day or two and browse the forum, reply or post things that interest you (as long as they're on topic).

Nice site with a cool design.
How did you get that floating register notice to appear on the main forum?!
