    A load of people look down on new forums when a place is in need of some support they rather snigger at how much more active their places are.

    I think it depends on the site itself and the time it has been opened.



    I was asked to post on a forum with 4 members that had been open 4 months and had about 40 posts in total.



    I felt like i needed to reply to myself to get it going. For this kind of request I think there needs to be a certain amount of posts in the first place, which will make other people want to join.

    People do, especially when they constantly look at forums.

    If it's a free hosted forum with a difficult to remember name and a lack of activity, then I will look down it I guess. If it's got potential though I won't do so.

    If you wanted to start a forum, make sure you (the owner) put in at least 25 topics, with some of them original.







    I don't really look down at forums unless the owner is stubborn or is a fanboy.

    I do look down at forums, especially when they have crappy sub links.

    That's a tad hypocritical. Extra Time had a subdomain for quite a long time.
