    Well, it's your decision, but I think you are right - the topic is already in use too many places. It's kind of exhausted now. If you do decide to keep running it (it doesn't look half bad!), you have to figure out a way to make YOUR site different and unique from the dozens of competiting sites out there. Remember, you've got to give people reasons to use your site over others. Good luck!

    Simply be different -- running a graphics forum, I'm assuming you know something about graphics So, post articles/tips about creating graphics that differ from what every other graphics site does.

    Make your forum standout, and people will notice it. There are a lot of graphic design forums, and for the most part they're all the same. Unless you can do something different, yours will only be lost in the mess...
