I think the best way is to spam other boards. You search for forums similar to yours, you register and then start sending PMs like crazy. Is the best way.

You do not send spam to staff members. They will not know. And if they find out, you just create another account and continue.

Breaking other boards rules and bad behavior is a no go - as a board admin, it would inform other boards with similar topics about you ...

And i would have "honeypot" users to catch someone like you ...

Yes, board owners being around long enough have such things in place ...

And do you not think that experienced board Admins cannot spot duplicate accounts a mile off.

If this is your attitude to "social media" then you seriously need to have a re-think

While spamming/advertizing can indeed give you new members it neither filters the quality of the members (other spammers as well?), nor their online activity (register once, visit once, never return).
