Guys, big thank you to you all for support.

Still, the problem exists.

Our club has done a couple local fishing championships in this summer. We do make new content on our website, We run actively our social media channels, but I need more young people to do that.

But still... the forum is not restarting :( From time to time we get new users (no it's not a spammers) in our forum but they don't do anything.

I monitoring other fishing forums and see that there are also similar problems: these forums have more members than our but they also are inactive...

I came up with an idea in the next fishing season make videos on "how to". But this will be in the next year.

You have too many forums and not enough posts so it looks deserted. Delete or merge forums that have few posts in them. The reason they don't have posts is because it's not a big enough specific subject to be worthy of a separate forum. Less is more. I don't know the language the board is in but my guess is you have some forums there on each fish that people might catch. Bin them and just have a forum on 'fish' because then you suddenly have a forum with 100-200 posts instead of 10 forums with 10 posts each and that makes it look a lot more busy and that encourages more activity.

https://translate.google.com/#auto/en/SPORTINĖS%20ŽŪKLĖS%20KLUBAS%20ŽVEJONYS tells us Lithuanian. Ogoneks, carons and macrons in one alphabet is something I rarily encounter, so I didn't know either.

yes, the language is Lithuanian.

I thinking of creating a poll. I need to understand what - and + our forum have.

What questions should I ask?

About what people wants to talk about like sharing their pictures from a fishing holiday or something.

Another question(s) could be about what people wish the forum had, perhaps a few game forums for the most popular games e.g RPG, Strategy, Simluation, Online games (Elder Scrolls Online - ESO) etc.

Of course most forums these days always have a General Dicussion forum for the most common subjects.
