My personal opinion, do not force the flow of natural conversation. If you want to start solid conversation starters do basic questions. Like your fav band or movie type topics. The rest should be started naturally, until there is a solid user base and daily visits the topics will be low. But if you only have quality then that in itself will draw in more active users.

Possibly also try narrowing down some of the subjects and making things a little more niche friendly.

You're off to a great start here, forums take years to be a solid foundation with a large user base.

Those are good forum topics, however what we are trying to tell you is, don't posts all of them on your forum because it's going to look odd!

"Controversial topics" are the once that make the people want to engage so if your forum has plenty of traffic and has a lot of users and the only thing that missing is action the try to post a few of those.

Among internet marketers the most popular topics are related to:

Increase Rankings or PageRank
Improve SEO
Get traffic


But topics that are related to something we do and experience every day at least most of us have to be pretty popular!

I think a best topic for any forum is their theme topic on which theme that forum is created like seo, development, education, politics, technology etc...The maximum topic of that forum must be created for that forum readers only, not for extra things...

the first reply was good...those are lovely topics.
however it will be better to post them little by little in order of event and timing.
Also, try associate your forum with popular trends in sport, entertainment, news and more!
