A few are dying yes. But, you can still manage to create a small, more niche forum, have a small community and survive. That's what I am attempting with the forum on my blog which has been going well so far.

We need to work on some interesting reward instead of Low pay. I am planning for something like free hosting for the members who are interacting and able to reach at least 300 points per month.

That's why some forums intentionally keeps trolls because the anger they cause makes people post more.

You don't always have to go with rewards. I think there are other members around the internet that like to join forums without the need for rewards. But if you are advertising here and BMF, then yeah I guess rewards can help convince them to join

If forums are revived with good reward system on ground then I don't think it will be this bad. Even the posters will sit up to post knowledgeable things too, instead of speeding through.

There are various forum sites on the internet with different rules and reward system. However, reward system is not the only interest for most but most do it for the sake of knowledge and information seeking. Reward is of course a bonus.

Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. We've had a few paid to post forums that have closed or decided to stop paying because of the poor quality of content they receive.

How can ForumCoin and other communities evolve to continue to attract people?

I have never heard of those forums you have mentioned above. I don't know how forum coin can evolve but I hope it stays for long.

I guess yes. FC is standing for now. Or maybe I'm just too late in joining other forums.

Is this really true?! I can sort of understand the rationale but what happens when some hardcore trolls bully innocent people and it's clear it's unprovoked, cruel and unfair? Do the moderators just stand back and rub their hands with glee because at least it keeps the forum going. Wow, if that's true, it's not nice LOL

Paid trolls are not bullies though. They just trigger people to debate.
