    If you're trying to encourage new members, I think it might help if you have a common message. What's the reason for coming here, rather than going to one of the other Gimp forums, GimpTalk for instance.

    Obviously there's no reason not to belong to them all, but I imagine you want them to come here first so what's your unique selling point?

    We need to use the Facebook page and Twitter page more effectively. Mods that have access to twitter, post stuff, follow people, let's use it! And followers- retweet often, recommend to your followers, let's do this!

    And same goes for facebook! not just mods but fans of the page post stuff to the wall! Share it!

    Sglider are you planning to make a theme when you get the details from Gimper? If not, we could buy a forum theme from a designer. I'd drop 10 or 15 dollars on it.

    Anyone know how much it might cost to make a theme for a phpBB forum?
