I have a lot of traffic for a specific topic. However, I know very little about the topic.
I want to start a new forum. Given that I am not an expert on this topic, do you think it would be difficult for me to start a successful forum?
What's more important in starting a new forum? 1. Having a lot of traffic? 2. Having an expert Admin Mod?
My thoughts are that it is not necessary to have an expert admin to begin with. As long as I create the "right" environment and rules, and I can attract experts to the forum, then the forum can be successful with my limited knoweledge. Am I naive?
No reason why that approach can't work, Buddha - the key ingredients for a mod/admin are keeping the environment friendly, welcoming, and funtioning smoothly. Of course having an expert or two around will help questions get answered quickly and keep visitors coming back.
