I don't understand why it isn't popular. The forum is stylish, has content and works perfectly.
Please help me!
What marketing methods have you been doing so far?
It's hard to get a forum going off the ground with no content on it. Are you starting new threads and also trying to get any exsisting members to post more?
Do you have any social bookmarking icons added to your forum? For example here at V7N forum, we have them under the signature if people wish to tweet something..etc
Since your forum is in the sports niche, you are competing with a ton of other forums out there and it will be tuff just getting new members to signup everyday. Can I ask you what forum software that you are using? Perhaps we can give you a little bit of SEO tips if we know the software to help you get your forum ranked a little better.
