I was referring to a mailing list sign up box on the home page. People who find it will sign up if they're interested. Then you send them a weekly "Latest hot topics in the forum" email with links in it.

And the question was not how to get people to post in the topics. The question was how to get people to the forum in the first place. Neither your mailing list, nor your paid topics will do any good if people are not going to your forum in the first place.
Yes. But they have to find it first. The question was how to bring them to your site in the first place.WWu777 wrote: People who find it will sign up if they're interested.
