I've not been to many forums, but maybe that's just it. After becoming a member here, I've found there's everything I need in a forum at v7n. (for me anyway)
Pro Designers, Coders, SEOs, DOmainers Blogggers and for sure, pro Nutters, what else could one ask for in a webmaster forum.

The friends i've made here, are friends i'm sure to have years from now, they're just that awsome.

Likewise, have you visited a town that welcomed you into the community as if you had lived there your entire life? It almost makes you want to call that new town home, doesn't it?

I think people have a natural need to feel accepted as a valuable member in a community. No matter how good the information in a forum might be, people are unlikely to stay around very long if they do not feel as if they are a part of the community around them.

When people are welcomed into a community, openly and honestly, they will become strong active members in the forum and do everything they can to help make it stronger.

I believe 'Clicks' can cause a very negative impact on a town..err forum. What do you think?

Nice thread, mam.... As far as I know a good forum is a combinations of good and helpful administrators and cooperating members....Balancing the situation and not taking posts personally.

this what makes a forum excellent as opposed to just a good one, is free flowing ideas from person to person, inviting atmosphere to new members, and is interesting and fun enough to keep people coming back more than once a day.

I don't know how to describe it..... but maybe it is the sense of community and friendliness, and willingness to help. I know when I first started posting here I didn't post all that often b/c I felt like I wasn't in the know...but then I started wanting to learn more things and hung around more, and felt welcome here. So here I am, 13k posts later... and I think I've made a few very good friends here.

The #1 thing is community. Respecting people and recognizing them as individuals. Not everybody, just the ones you want to stick around.

Great thread idea.

Respect, as many have mentioned. Relatively objective mods and administrators. Complete objectivity is probably impossible.

The subject area that a forum is built around is quite important as well. For example, sports forums built around a particular league can get very nasty with the natural antagonism between fans from opposing teams. The very fact that most people are on these forums because they have been motivated to create something probably results in a strong foundation.

I also believe that a firm set of guidelines regarding disputes etc., and a sense that favouritism doesn't exist for long-term members in such situations can help (not that I plan on testing this theory!)

And, as some have mentioned, a forum culture (which will start at the top often) that accepts change and evolution of the forums. There's nothing that turns me off more when I join a new forum than to hear people lamenting how lousy things are compared to what it used to be like.
