I really thanks you for your effort. It tells about your work, and it serves as a great example of your work. You take an astounding amount of information and present it in a way that feels "safe" (not overwhelming or deceptive) to me: clear, well-organized, and thorough. I am also handling an online portal i.e. GetRit.com and I would like to add some further points that one should keep in mind to create engagement in any online discussion which is mentioned below:

  • Lead the way: Create the desired topic threads, hoping that users will react. This requires some research into the niche and writing content that makes users respond to it, i.e. questions instead of statements.
  • Welcome and encourage new users (this also creates stickiness if you pour traffic in).
  • Ask questions, poll the users, ask people to tell their stories.
  • Make sure to have recurring topics or themes, this way you solicit the users to re-engage.
  • Find a way to reward contributors.
  • Select the title of your discussion.
