Lounge Den - MinecraftGeek - 03-30-2013

This site was made yesterday, I waited until the domain had propagated for everybody Smile

Lounge Den is a new forum, It's based on general discussion but I'm currently working on making a niche like that unique. It's been live for a few hours, It's already active. It has the following sections:

- Lounge
- Graphics Den
- Gamers Den
- Media Room
- Webmaster Den
- Market Den

Tabs may be added as the site progresses with activity and member base etc. Awards will be added soon, We're always looking for new suggestions. Upgrades won't be added until we hit 1k as i'm not intending to make money from the site.

There are a variety of things to do on the forum, I plan on adding a Games section so members will have something fun to do when nobody is online.

Choice of theme is good and the domain is good as well.

The top bar which has the username and password boxes and register button is only half visible to me.
A general discussion niche is heavily saturated. You need to work on a unique niche to be successful. And i know you mentioned you are working on a unique niche, but i believe you should have done it before registering your domain and showcasing it here.

Good luck.

They're just going to go do something else, somewhere else.

Unique content that separates your forum from say, FK, or another general/lounge board. What makes your forum special? You're a salesman selling your forum to potential new members.

What any forum needs is content. What you should be aiming for is to have unique content that encourages discussion and then to go and get members.

You are unlikely to get members here - this is a site about the MyBB software for forum owners who have sites of their own. That is going to be your main task once you have some content queued up - GET members and KEEP them by making your site a place which offers something nowhere else does. Rather hard to do in the oversaturated general discussion niche you have chosen.

You need to get a better theme.
