So, I had this idea all of a sudden to create a forum for the purpose of sharing and helping create original characters. Of course, running a forum is no easy task, especially when there are many people and the risk of spam/trolls/etc. involved. Thus, I'd like some tips on how best to approach this. I am going to use Forumotion like Justin does for this site, and even have a good idea of the hierarchy of the forums. Any further help would be appreciated though.
Also, if you know somebody who absolutely knows how to make interesting and well-developed characters, please refer me to them; I'd be willing to make them mods or even co-admins, so that I won't have to be burdened with the management. Thanks!
