Well, I think to start, you need some more original content. You say no one stay or come back, perhaps it is because they are looking for your website to solve their problems. Discovering these problems and solving them is what you need to do as webmaster. Do they need entertainment? Give them some original content. Do they want to talk about something important to them? Promote what they're wanting more information on.

Right now I don't think there is enough content. Much of it is only available to IE users (games section). The movies section looks like something is coded incorrectly.

So that's where I'd start if you're looking to make money with this website. I don't think an user database will help much at this point, but you can try if you want.

Other options for making money online might include doing something like designing tee-shirts for zazzle.com or making something you can sell. Perhaps doing websites for other people? Also, check out the advertising section for more information on making money with advertising.

Hope that helps, and good luck with your aspirations.

Overall, you need a better web design with less "bad" things on it (counters, generic search bars, excess gradients, colour schemes, et cetera). You make a good web design, and you've got one step done.

But before all of that, you must first ask yourself: What will my site do that other sites won't? What makes my site unique enough for people to want to come to it? If you can answer those questions and make a good definite plan with unique content on it, you've got the very first step. Then focus more on making a good web design, then start advertising your site on newsgroups, chatrooms, et cetera. Having your friends come as part of the initial community can help a lot, since you can start a pyramid scheme to have new users.

Well, as of right now, I think the color scheme should be changed. The black text on blue background isn't working for the music player.

Just fancy it up a bit now, you've got the layout. Also maybe get rid of the sides on the main page.
