...which is sort of the reason for this post.  I am not sure what "goals" to set.  I have never done this and I am not really sure how high to set the goal post.

IMO in just three months I would consider that fairly successful, especially if it's invite only. Just imagine how it could grow over time if it wasn't invite only. IMO if you are getting a daily stream of active traffic then that is definitely a plus and something to grow on.

On the other subject, I don't see anything wrong with having a private forum that is not open to the public. Yes, I can see how some would think it defeats the purpose but, then on the other hand maybe some already have a private member base and doesn't need public interaction. The forum is still serving it's purpose whether it's private or public and that's all that matters.
