Its just the basic xand theme,you havent even changed the banner.
Forums are really difficult to get off the ground,good luck with this one however.
thanks for yor comments and suggestions. please tell me how to change the banner of the forum. also tell me how to get more and more traffic for my forum
More traffic to your forum ... actually get a website...
all u have right now is a free dictionary that isn't even on the website :/
besides free dictionary, most would go to dictionary.com
You need CONTENT otherwise nobody would want to go to your website. People aren't going to join now because you have nothing to talk about on ur website and there are a ton of websites already developed with similar forums and topics :/
so best bet if you really want a successful forum = get something to attract visitors or have a ton of friends help you start the forums up and have interesting unique topics rather than same old same old like everywhere else :/
banner wise: open paint copy paste banner. Then copy paste one side of banner and put ontop of text then put ur text on it.. :/ or use photoshop
communities take time and effort and beyond on content, content content. Nothing interesting, nobody would want to go to it.
1 month :O LOl
I've been thinking about this for over 2 years !!!
lol and I've had some good ideas but never followed through seeing as most good content requires a lot of time and effort unless you know how to start a craze like digg.com that is user based rather than staff based.
Find ur strengths and work at that. Blogging is a start but is rarely content to start a forum unless your blogging is like an online magazine. (Get a few friends and just write news about life/fashion/movies etc) But remember there are other sites out there so try to be unique as possible in either how you deliver the content or the actual content itself.
If you know programming/graphic design etc then write tutorials and post them on pixel2life or other tutorial indexing sites <== usually design sites can get a good graphic/web designing community up if you have unique tutorials that are hard to find else where. (Most popular and easiest to get going in my opinion as long as you got the skills)
Fan sites are also great but are very specific in the visitors.
Otherwise you're in a dump x] in getting a community going.
with html,c,c++ and java usually only HTML and Java will help because c and C++ people are more of the programming study from book type rather than online.
I'd be happy to work on sites with people that possibly provide tutorials.
I myself have done tutorials before and usually can present some good if not unique ones, although photoshop I've lost my edge and have fallen behind tremendously.
I really like your layout that is very nice.
Keep it up:)
