    If the forum is new the admin should make a few posts in every section to get discussions going.

    Its terrible, some forums also has a tendency to archive threads of the previous year, which makes the Forums look like a Graveyard...Honestly I wouldnt prefer to join on something like that, the admins must take care to always brings fresh content to their forums

    People here should really clarify on what they mean by empty forums.







    If the forum is active, but only has maybe 1 or two boards that are inactive, then it isnt a bad place to post, it just means that a particular subject isnt popular for the people on that forum.







    Now, if the forum had tons of boards, and had no posts whatsoever in any of the boards, then it can be a turn off.

    They do look very unprofessional and like the forum is dead, if there is just one then it's usually because the forum is starting up but sometimes people have too many forums with not enough people to post in all of them.

    More than a week to fill up a whole forum? I'd give it about a month.

    It is a big turn off if the forum has empty forum with no content in it. It makes the forum look inactive as well.
