How to create a sense of community in a new forum ??
#1
It is really very important for a new forum to run and grow, that they have a good sense of community. Ask yourself "Why people will go to any forum?", the answer is simple. They get their problems solved, get information about their respective niche, share their views, interact with others etc. Today I am going to share some tips about building a community sense in your newly founded forum.

Admin Role- Always remember that if you are the admin then you are the one who is responsible for your forum's community culture. It does not matter how many contributing members or moderators you have in your forum, it is your sole duty to look after each and every thing. The admin will have to be very active. I am not saying this that you have to be online in your forum all day but you have to login twice or a couple of times a day, see thoroughly (and reply if necessary) each and every forum, sub-forums, solve the problems of the members etc.

Add Content in a daily basis- Community forums are like club houses, people came to get and share information everyday. So add content in a daily basis, ask your contributing members and moderators also to add. Articles like tutorials, how-to's are very good for getting visitors and loyal readers but you must also post debates, review of any product, preview of any upcoming product, discussions, ask your members about any topic that what they think about it etc.

Managing Online Community- A good management always refers to a good community sense. Look after you moderators and major contributors along with your members. Everyone should follow your forum rules. If anyone posts any content which provides no value or totally irrelevant content then give them a reminder. Each and every topic must be under their perfectly relevant forum so keep that in mind. If anyone posts in the wrong forum then move the topic to the right one and send him/her a short message by giving the new link to the post.
