I've been involved with development and moderation of other forums for hobbies and automative over the years. It can take quite a bit to build traffic when so many makes/models exist in a brand. I myself get frustrated when I have to sift threw forums that are generic to a make instead of focusing on a model or hull. For example many sites do well when they are just focused on one thing, for example Bertram28.com

My suggest is to have less sub forums in the site that will get little traffic and focus on developing items by year or hull size. Although I have a 3100 convertible I'd rather be reading only on a forum covering 3100, convertible or from the 80s area. I really don't care about reading posts from a 2007 42 footer worth $500K we have nothing in common!

thanks

PS. where is the little check box that tells me how I want updates from my post (immediate, daily, weekly, ect)?

Thank you for your suggestions. There is a planned reorganization for later this year.

Tiara has been making boats for a very long time and the models and configurations have changed A LOT over that time. Creating subforums as you suggest would create dozens of subforums and that isn't going to happen.


The reorganization will include a new software platform as well as a more logical, focused, forum/subforum structure. It will take time... migrating to a new platform and moving 1000's of threads to the new subforums is not an easy task Smile
