It seems to me that sciforums.com has a large, varied, and intelligent group of members - and harder to see, an audience, even, who may simply read posts and move on. My question is, what do you attribute the success of this large community to? Though I'm not familiar with exoscience, I'm curious as to how you acquired the number of members you have? Did you use advertising? Do you attribute it to "word of mouth" via the internet? And if you were to start over, somewhere, with a new name, how would you plan on bringing this many intelligent people to a forum?
