I have just passed 2600 users which is a good sign but when porting over to the new RC2 i expect the number to drop and clear out unactivated accounts.
Did you take a look at your signature? Because your doing exactly what you say not to do?
Maybe I'm confused? Hehe..
Also I have a tip for you, if you take it or not, but you should make your forums look a lot better get rid of them affiliate links and put them on another page, then have that link at the top, in bold or whatnot that way it doesn't look very bloated and most people hate ads/banners just fills up things that don't need to be there, I won't ever put more then one ad on my site, I'm sure others won't do this but You should really make it user friendly!
Just a tip don't get offended.
i only have that there so people who are helping me out with code or users who want to see my site can take a look. Just like yours really. I'm not after visitors from this site. just help guidance and advice and where possible returning advice to other users to help develop my knowledge.
Anyway ryan - drop me a pm i'd like to chat to you about your new venture.
Its also nice to know with the new phpbb when a bot is visiting your site. I've checked out my site at the moment and its getting regular visits from the bots... so they are indexing my new site already.
