Only thing related to San Andreas that is still active nowadays (AFAIK) is SA:MP.

Maybe you could change it to be about GTA in general, or you're just not reaching out to the possible public.

Maybe you should read on some topics around this board. No matter what topic you choose you first need to attract members to participate in it.

She already did T.C. ... broadening your subject to all of GTA would vastly improve your membership I think ...

If you want to get out of the GTA subject arena, then do as she last suggested:

Point to note just about any forum has to be able to grow with the topic they choose, unless that topic has huge staying power.

Case in Point.  A forum to talks about Super Bowl in 2018 will end its use end of the year. However a group discussion Super Bowls Past and present
could go on inventively. ( providing copyrights are Ok with the topic chosen )
People like fresh and new, say a fishing forum would go on for ever because in that industry things change monthly.  Which leads me to the next
you have to be current on your info.  You have to be the GTA guy thats got the info.  Just watch TV by midnight news at 2pm is old news.

Based on another of your topics I just answered it looks as if you are trying to build a forum for the purpose of making money.

If indeed that is your aim, then you are wasting your time. There are MUCH easier ways to earn money than trying to extract money from forum users....

Aside from that - nobody here can tell you what your forum should be about. Forums are usually born from passion. I run a motorcycle forum because I'm passionate about a particular bike.

Forum members have donated some money to keep the forum ticking along (covering expenses) but there's certainly no profit in it and that is not my intention anyway.

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.
