    Forum Interview





    1. Where did the idea, and motivation come from when getting Chatting Time up and running?



    Answer: I originally had the idea back in 2008 to create a forum in general. I guess I just got caught up in the hype of everyone else doing it, and I thought it'd be fun to try. However, there was loads more to running a forum than I realized. I guess I just wanted a community where people can just lay back and talk about the things they want to talk about. It's kind of a long story as to how it started, and I don't remember all the details, so that's basically the short version of it.



    2. How would you rate your forum's success up until now, from a 1-10, and why?



    Answer: Chatting Time has been open for a month, so I would say we are doing quite well, considering we are still a very new community.



    3. What do you consider the best aspect about your forum?



    Answer: Probably the best aspect of our forum is that it's pretty much laid-back. We do have rules of course, but they aren't very strict rules like some other boards have. We do not delete accounts for inactivity because you never know if a member will want to come back and resume posting again.



    4. The worst? (Or things you'd like to change or add)?



    Answer: Well, I would eventually like to get a domain, despite the fact that the url I have is easy to remember. Other than that, the only thing that's bothering me is activity levels at the moment. We are kind of low on activity at the moment.



    5. I see your forum has had a complete makeover. How has the overall process been for you?



    Answer: Well, we didn't quite have a total revamp, the most we've done thus far is getting a banner added (Finally! ) and just adding a couple forums here and there. We may add more forums in the future. But I want to wait on that until we get more activity and more requests and things like that.



    6. What other hobbies do you enjoy besides advertising and talking away with friends on your forum?



    Answer: I enjoy visiting other forums that are the same niche as mine... I have been a member of a backstreet boys related forum for almost three years that I love visiting. Offline, I love listening to music and spending time outside when the weather permits.



    7. If you could give any advice to admins on advertising their own forum, what would it be?



    Answer: Stick With Your Host is the main key words here. I don't know how many members I have lost from all the times I've moved, and I don't know why I've never been able to just stick with one host and be done with it. I think it's because there are so many to choose from, how can anyone stick with just one? But that's the main thing is once you find a host you like, stick with them! It's wonderful to experiment with other hosts and find out the similarities and differences, but that doesn't mean you should move everytime you find something you like, and I think that's the biggest mistake I've ever made as a forum owner. However, this is only my first year of running a forum, so I've got a lot to learn, basically.



    8. Now, I gotta ask. Which do you prefer talking more on, forums or on the phone?



    Answer: lol, I would prefer probably talking on forums more than anything. I think it has to do with a writing assignment we did when I was in 8th grade. The teacher made us write down what we were thinking or feeling and I don't remember what I put at the time, but that assignment pretty much proved that I'm much better voicing my opinions and feelings a lot better in writing than verbally.



    Note:



    I took out a couple of the questions as they were not related to this forum. This was an interview I did some time ago on Forum Promotion, when I had another forum called Let's Just Talk, and I sort of changed the answers on some questions so that they related to Chatting Time and things like that.

    ----------------------

    Hey everyone, this particular topic is about the general chat forum, Chatting Time. Yes, this is my site, and we are about a month old, now. Started on January 23, 2010, Chatting Time is the ultimate friendly general chat community where you are free to speak your mind and have a good time. I have tried for almost 2 years to come out with a forum, but it was always either a lack of interest, or a lack of dedication, or any combination. This time I feel like I really have come out with something half-way decent for a change, and I'm hoping that even if we don't get the success that some forums have, we can still have a good time and just kick back and relax, which is mostly what CT is about. Later, I'll post my questions about my forum owning experiences... probably use some of the questions that I did when I had another forum at the time.

    This is actually an interview that I did for another board I had, but a lot of the information is still the same. And yes, I agree, it is a good way to get to know a person's forum more.



    Any questions that anyone has, about Chatting Time, feel free to comment and let me know, and I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability.

    Server Stall...

    Hey you guys, if you have been having trouble getting on Chatting Time, as I have, I need to inform you that my co-administrator and I have corresponded on FP just now, and he tells me that his server stalled, and as we speak, they are trying to reboot the server. I will post an update when the site is back online. Sorry for the inconvienence.

    Chatting Time is Now Hiring!

    Hey everyone, I have a busy summer ahead of me, and so I won't be able to be on as much as I like. If you are an active member of Chatting Time, I urge you to apply for our possible 2 moderator positions we have available. Please see full details here: http://www.chattingtime.taynec8.co.uk/v ... ?f=4&t=131 Thanks and hope to see some applications soon, as we could really use the help!

    1000 Posts and 32 members!

    Hey everyone, just letting you know that we have reached 1000 posts and 32 members! Also, this summer, due to a busy pending schedule, I could be stepping down to a temporary global mod and I'll see if Tayne can watch over the site for me. If I find that I enjoy being a mod, I could end up staying in that position. Don't know yet. We'll keep you updated.
