1. Active Admin and moderators
A forum full of spam is ridiculous. It spreads a clear picture that the forum is not maintained and will eventually die, which is what I'm seeing with other surf-fishing specific forums.
2. Easy method to share a report
I think people love to share a successful day of fishing. I sure do.
3. Easy Photo Sharing
People love photos and videos, especially photos and videos that contain fish. Making it easy and rewarding to share them will be key to a happy surf-fishing forum.
4. Easy Navigation, with minor changes only
This relates to 2 & 3, but I've seen many forums try to upgrade or move to the next big thing, and they completely obliterate the content creation. This one will be maintained and upgraded but only in small phases that do not affect the overall navigation.
Anyway, I'm gonna give it a go. I love fishing and I especially love surf fishing. There HAS to be like-minded folks out there.
