How can i improve my forum

Well..what incentive do people have to signup? There's a million forums that cover the same niche, and they're a lot more populated and you can actually find a lot more info on them. You're using a free forum script, on free hosting, with a free domain. Not the recipe for success...

im not so sure what the free hosting or free forum script has to do with it ive seen other websites with lame layouts but still get traffic and of course its a free forum script which is why its called "mybb community forum"

but aside from that how can i attact people to sign up i already know that if i have to many categories and a small amount of members(in my case none)and people wont be attracted to that idea

Yeah! You can be on a free host and a free theme. But you need to be unique to be success.

Ask yourself a question. If you are visiting a site of similar niche and is empty like this, will you join up?
That's what people see too. You need to choose an unique niche or do some change in your forum to make your Forum different from other similar forums around.

You need a domain too; lack of one shows lack of interest or dedication in the site, and will reflect on the amount of signups you get. And what kavin said is very very true, people have no reason to join your site over another, more established one right now.

Nothing to see here, you have used one of the most common MyBB theme with absolutely nothing to offer. Bravo.

There are many ways to get domain without spending your money.
You can do some posting works for people and earn some cash to get a domain.

When i visited your forum i was looking foward to it, but i got there, there was nothing really that caught my eyes, 5 Posts and 5 Topics not good, you should never promote a site with out having it least 250 posts on your forum, Get some packages done before you go a head with promoting your forum.

I wish you all the best.
