    Simpson Community

    Hi, this is a Simpson community I recently set up a short while ago. I have called it HomerSimpson.tv (this is also the link)

    I am trying to make this forum as unique as possible but it still lies in the dark while newer forums pass it.

    How can I turn this forum around? Is it possible?

    Seems to have all the right things:

    Good domain, Nice header, nice Look and feel, active posters.

    What can you do with the Donuts? Anything yet?

    You can use the donuts/points to play games in the arcade but thats about it. I am trying to think up new ways people can use them.

    Any suggestions?

    Exchange donuts for a text link on the page perhaps?

    heres my suggestions..

    1. make the start page the forums. and have the rest as menus
    2. I think a better forum software and with better looking (cartoonish and saturated) skin is in order.
    3. Try harder to think of something unique. Use your brain think for a couple of days about it, go on other cartoon fan forums and get ideas such as futurama and see what there doing to get vistors... Heres something.. make your own original flash game or hire someone.
    4. Spend some money on advertising.

    Good luck

    What sort of advertising should I get? It all ends up as a waste of money for me.

    anywhere your target audience is. If done properly (keywords) Google Adwords can be a good place to start.

    The layout on your front page is great! What about using RSS to show the latest posts from the forum on that page? Also, you did so great on design on front, but it seems like you got tired when it came to designing the forum. Maybe change the style around a bit.

    Otherwise, I think its great!

    The white text on the yellow backgound is something I would change. (Hurts my eyes)

    Other then that, I think it's a great design.
