If you want to start a site, a community or forum on a subject what would be the best way to get people to start interacting on the site?
The more people there the more people are attracted to it, but at the start very few are there. With very few people at the site others look once and never return.
I admit I've done the same with sites. I look at the user count or number of threads and decide that its not worth my time. What can the site owner do to boost involvement and excitment?
