---- More to an online community than just a forum?

Communities are about people, you say? Okay, yeah, it would be a kinda lonely community if it was just me, but let's say we start with me and then a girl shows up.... etc
Then what? What services have you added? In what order? What dictated the change or addition? What was the added value?
It's supply and demand.
Gimicks and utilities are just that. The *only* added value in a community site is more quality people coming to the community.
They demand - you supply, if it's within reason.
Things like pubcons, arranging meets etc, are great (we've had some success with that), but my experience is that you'll know exactly what to do when the time is right to do it. And by that stage, your community has already started building itself.
