    Forum Posting Service Reviews

    Nice article Chris, it's wiped out a few concerns I had at first.

    I think I'll give Inb0x a try in the next few weeks...

    I'm using postonmyforum and they're not bad. The only thing I dislike is that a lot of their posts seem to be just links to news articles, with a very small comment. It kinda wastes the posts.

    Also, some of the posts you can tell that they're trying to make discussion and perhaps are artificial. I don't know if it will be similar with other companies, but the way they phrase things makes me wonder if outsiders know they are "fake posters".

    Interesting article. I have often wanted to attempt to start a forum solely with artifficial posts and see how far I could get. Order 300-1000 posts from 8-10 different companies and let them go at it for a month while still traditionally promoting the forum and see what happens.

    Would be an interesting experiment, I believe, and make for an interesting article. Alas, I don't have the money to dump into such a (potentially) fruitless project right now.

    Would be a neat idea to try Josh.

    Too bad it would not help my community (too location specific and requires some diligence and thought)

    Forums that hire posters are frauds that have zero editorial integrity and they will all fail because people can see through that sort of thing, posting services are a joke and are major scams and a blot on the forum community!

    Ok then FPU, how do you create a successful forum now then? If you take posting services out of the equation, as well as talking to yourself (which I'm sure you'll disagree with), how do you get forums off the ground?

    I'm waiting

    The same way forums were built before the scams of paid posting services came about!

    I guess you just have not seen much truth in your life if that is what you call it, I feel bad about that!

    I sent an inquiry to forumlaunch.com three days ago, but haven't heard back since. Just for the record, I've never used these services before, but I've been curious and thought they might have some value for certain types of posts.
