I don't know if this is in the right place. If it isn't please feel free to move it.

I was curious if either PHPBB.com or another site offered a place for PHPBB forum owners to brainstorm, share ideas and help find ways to promote their sites.

There are a couple of dedicated communities for that kind of thing, such as TheAdminZone and ForumPromotion.

Sadly the latter is very inactive these days, looks like TAZ is still fairly active though :)

And we won't be adding such section, as it will end up in just people spamming there forums, and thats not something we want :).

stevemaury said I should post here about this subject but you're saying otherwise. That's confusing. It's entirely possible to just set some rules to avoid people promoting their forums.

I'm curious what PHPBB has in the works (and already available) to combat the exodus fro bulletin boards to other social media such as Facebook groups

there is not much phpBB can do to stop people from moving to facebook etc.
however, I have seen some evidence of a trend to move back to bulletin boards for discussions.
many facebook users are apparently leaving facebood for many different reasons. one of which is
the fact that you can't really have a discussion using facebook the same way you can using a bulletin board script.

This is a site where you can brainstorm, share ideas and find ways to promote your site. That's different to out and out promoting your site.

Depending on the exact topic, this forum and phpBB Discussion are proper for such topocs. Paul is saying that we do not want to DEDICATE a forum to this. And if posts here or in phpBB Discussion are spamming boards, they will be removed. Hope that clarifies it.
