Hello Nerd Forum members. You may or may not know, but Nerd Forum is a very young community, less than 3 months old as of writing this. I'd like to see it become a large, thriving community and I'm sure many of you would as well. Here are some ways that you, the member base, can help with that.
  • Tell your friends. Some of you probably keep your real life and internet lives separate, and that's perfectly fine. Tell your internet friends if that's the case. Don't push it on them like you're a Jehovah's witness, but let them know it's here.
  • Links from other forums. If you visit other forums, and it's within the rules, put a link here in your signature. On most forums and blogs, there is also a profile field for your website. If you don't have one of your own, please put nerd forum there. Search engines eat up these links and it helps us grow.
  • Share buttons. At the bottom of every thread you will see these nifty share buttons: Attached File  share.png   6.53K   2 downloads
    Using these buttons you can share via twitter, facebook, google, digg, delicious, reddit, stumbleupon, email, or even print it out and hand copies to the local population. If you use any of these services, and you like the thread, please share. These help get our name out there.
  • Tag. When you make a new thread, you'll see an option to add tags. Please do, as this puts the words into the meta description for search engines.
  • Be nice to new members. This is most important. No one wants to be part of a community where they don't feel welcome, so be sure to say hello to the new guys and gals and give them a warm welcome.
Thank you all for reading this. I hope you all find something in here that you would like to do to help. If not, that's fine too. I just ask that you have fun and enjoy your time here at Nerd Forum. :)

Question about tags:

Is putting singulars as well as plurals of words in the tags preferrable or necessary to be effective? Or is putting the singular of a word enough? I've been putting both, mostly because I run of tag ideas after 5 or 6, but I want to use the maximum of 10. Dun wanna be slacking off on our quest to become rich and famous. Err...I dunno about rich, but at least well known and popular ^^ I demand a staff position if this occurs in the future :P

Just the singular version should be enough. :)

We'll see what happens. :P

Haha, ok. :)
When it's time for mods, they will all be from the community, so everyone has a chance, as long as they're a good member.

I'll be honest.

I don't prefer forums being HUGE. I enjoy smaller communities where people at least everyone knows who you are, remembers you. Hell, a community can be successful with 20 regulars (my personally ideal amount) if they post enough.

With that said, I wish this forum luck. I've seen quite a few just fail entirely.

It doesn't need to be huge, but you can still have a tight-nit community with up to 10 regulars I think.
