I'm trying to think of an idea to make a forum. I want some ideas on what it should be for.
What do you guys look for in a forum besides games like this one?

Well, I am a member of sites that discuss either video games, music, politics and porn and those are all pretty active. So any of those should do fine.

You really need to have a reason for starting a forum, and make it about something that people are actually interested in, otherwise you'll only get about 5 members and no one will keep coming back. If you need to take ideas on what you should do a forum about, then I can be pretty sure it won't be a big, active community. I could be wrong though.

Ye but you won't be, unless he just makes a massive porn website, but I believe someone already thought of that.

You have to be pretty original to get a free forum to be as popular as you want it to be. If you check out the stats pages for free forum providers you'll see they have millions of existing boards but most of them are dead or deleted. Forums are best left to accompany a website imo.

Yeah I agree. There is one exception, support forums, they don't need websites, people always have problems.
