For getting more members (the enthusiasts type, not the meat'n'two veg type) to join the forum?

Forums tend to grow slowly, with word of mouth being the best way of getting new members.

A Facebook page will help, we had members sign up before after searching on FB for old school bikes. Our FB page should be up and running later tonight.

The stickers will help, seeing the site address on an old school steed is always a good way of attarcting new members. These have been ordered and will be on sale soon.

These things tend to take time, we are less than a week old now and already have a nice range of bikes on the boards, new members are always happy to see peoples rides and more incouraged to post if they can see the community is a good one.

All good points there Steve Smile

Good news regarding stickers, eagerly awaiting to see them.
I don't use FB, but I can see it being a great way of getting the site advertised, which reminds me, I forgot to send some pictures over, I will do that tonight, if you have what you need that's cool.

I know it takes time, im just impatient lol, the more the merrier bounce

I'm OK for pics at the minute, but I'll try and update the Facebook pictures every few months just to keep it fresh.

We will also be featuring a few of the builds on the FB page, it give people an idea of what we are all about.

Any other suggestions on how to grow the forum are always welcomed, as are ideas on new boards, ect.
