Wish I'd known before starting a general chat forum how hard it was going to be to get new members. There are just so many successful (as in huge) general chat forums already up. And, mine is just a tiny fish in a very large pond. If I had to guess, I'd say that general chat is the hardest forum niche to compete in. Though maybe gaming forum would be equally hard as there are so many of those forums already. What type of forum niche is hardest to compete in, from your own experience?
