There are forums that are owned by several people like in a partnership business or corporation. A forum with several owners is one good way of getting posts regularly since the owners can contribute their time. But in one forum that I know, the owners were divided into 3 factions because of the issue of earnings. And since the arguments were heated and it looked like the situation is irreconcilable, my advice to one owner is to initiate a dissolution so everything can be divided among the owners. Or maybe a group can make a buyout. But it proved to be a complicated matter that it took weeks before the problem was resolved. They closed down the forum. It's a shame because it was a dynamic forum.
