    Most popular forum?

    Anyone have an idea of what the most popular forum is? Because i want to study how they manage a large user base, upgrade/backup, etc.

    One of the biggest i've found is
    http://board.rapmusic.com

    the moderation is alright, but not the best...

    I believe http://board.flashkit.com/board/index.php is one of the largest in terms of members - 334,000+. Also, FanHome.com is another big vB.

    That place isn't highly moderated - it is so active that it would be a nightmare unless you had a gigantic team.

    Wow, with that many people and how busy they are, their page rank is only 5. Google reports only 6 sites linking to them. Wonder how they got that big?

    Probably use the most effective form of advertising known to mankind...

    Which also happens to be the #1 form of advertising that people overlook when promoting their website...

    It is also the number one form of viral advertising and has been around since before man could write...

    www.gaiaonline.com is actually a tribute to what phpBB can do considering the number of posts and users, it has to be a substantial effort to keep it running.

    Go Gaia is IMO the biggest forum that excists. Also they have already lost thousands of users during crashes, so I heared. So add a bit of 50.000 members to it.
