I want to compose music for musical theatre. I don't necessarily wish to be Andrew Lloyd Webber famous, however, I'd like to be recognized as talented and accomplished at what I do by those who are familiar with what I do.

You'll definitely need to hook up with a writer for theatre then, as you'll be collaborating with writers all the time. I'd say get involved with the local theatre community (a lot of em are dying on their arse so would welcome anyone), or I believe Ryudo's family are (or were) heavily involved in the theatre business, so I'd suggest talkin to him too.

Impossible. I am the best there ever was, is, and ever will be. Sorry.

LawXiu helped me get the website up so very happy. I just hope I can get people to join. Most have ignored me which bums me out. So I PM's a couple I know that have a long history running forums how to promote and get it off the ground. I really need for this to happen. It also helps my hearing for disability of all things. They want to know what do I do if not working. So I spent 9 hours working on it. Mitts help me Promote my site.

You need to get on Facebook and Twitter. Personally, I don't care for them, and I used to only use Facebook to post random shit. But yeah, it helps a lot. I've already lined up 5 clients (3 of which are for next month), and that was within a couple of days.

Obviously, you'll have to wait a little longer to build up your friends list, but the bottom line is that social networking does work, and if you want your site to be a success, you'll have to bite the bullet and just do it.

What you can also do is participate in online gaming, focussing on the type of games that you review, or are relevant to the site, build up some rapport amongst your team and/or opponents, and then tell them about your website.

At the end of the day, it's a lot of work, and it isn't a simple case of "here's a link, go to my website". You need to let the people know what the website's about, speak with passion and charisma, make them feel that goin onto your website will be worthwhile.

One thing that will definitely keep people there after they've been on are sprites. I dunno what it is about them, but sprites have an allure that gamers just can't resist. If you find a website that is decorated with these, you almost feel compelled to want to stick around even if it's shit, just because of those pretty-looking 2D characters.

When I get my site up and running, we can run some cross-site ads (when it comes to it, I'll show you how to make ads not actually look like ads) Eventually, when mine is a success (which it will be), the increase in traffic will mean that you can charge for advertising, so you can actually make some money too.

That's getting ahead though, promotion is all about networking if you can't afford advertising, so take a break from single player gaming for a while, get out there (well... internet 'out there') and start building up some rapport!

Yeah, defo. If you can, you should run competitions where the person who refers the most members (who also make at least 25 posts) wins. Obviously, you'll have to think long and hard about the type of prize that's big enough for people to be interested in, and cheap enough for you to fund without breakin the bank. This will kill three birds with one stone, increase interest, activity, and the number of your forum members.

Good decision, good prize. I'd go for that. You're best spreadin it over two months to increase the longevity of activity, and to get people into the habit of going on the website (90% of web traffic is said to be out of habit over any other reason)
