    I just registered, activated, and posted

    I have created an account there, activated it, and made my first post. It is about the possibilities surrounding the PowerPC G6.

    <edit> Cool! I've been promoted to MacRumors regular!</edit>

    There are a ton of unsuccessful forums out there, just look around a little bit...

    I'd like to see you do it. It is really not that easy to maintain a mac news/rumor site and forums, and even harder to attract enough people to the forums, especially since there are so many rumor sites out there. Most people go to big ones like macrumors, making it hard for smaller ones to compete.

    My friends and I started one about a year ago but it failed miserably, the two big reasons being that we did not have enough time to maintain it and because nobody was writing in the forums.

    I never said it wasn't hard. It probably is, big time! The point is the title of this thread said, "Big Rumors Site that is hidden".

    I just laugh that they would call that big!

    I was actually referring to the "My friends and I can do better than that" part.

    what is in it for you? what's the secret agenda? i ask because there's been a few of these "new 'great' :rolleyes: mac site!" posts and you seem to be early members at them all...

    just curious.

    this site has 111 members and most online at once was... 8 (!) :eek:

    what new features? if there was a compelling reason to join, people will come. but please stop promoting this site as if it's greatest thing since the sliced bread!

    It takes more to run a community site than to just throw up a forum. You need to offer the readers something. Macrumors offers daily news tidbits to spark conversation. Seems this zhenyadesign site just has a forum and no real focus or content.

    It doesn't even peak my interest enough to register.
