Defy,

Did you get a chance to run the modified coreldraw file I sent back to you?

Well my CCL has developed a problem. It will fire at power setting with test fire but not when commanded with software. I emailed the vendor and they replied that it is warranted for 2 years and they will be happy to take care of the problem! Wow! Not bad for for a $366 system.

I am trying a forum that will consolidate the laser maker community. It is in extreme alpha so do not expect a lot to start. I do have grand ideas but will have to wait until the full time job, wife and life get out of the way! One can hope! So here it is warts and all. All feedback good and bad is welcome.

I'd be happy to be proven wrong, but you can't really have just a forum. With almost no exceptions, successful forums I've seen are associated with either a product or company, or with a site with original content, such as a news site, a magazine, a review site, a blog, or an artistic endeavour or repository thereof (including comics, fan fic and erotica). I think a well-curated reference may also work as anchor.

No product or content, no forum, though.

This is much less important and may be just me, but all successful forums I'm aware of are PhpBB.

I believe Quora and Stackexchange and Reddit and Typophile and Sawmill Creek and Archerytalk would gainsay that — and of course, once upon a time, usenet, which I miss. If you develop a community, their conversation will become the content.

Quora and the Stack Exchange family are question-answer sites, so that's the content. Reddit is a special case, in a way similar to Usenet (see below); it's like the Yellow Pages of discussion: it has everything and everyone knows about it. I'm not sure about the history of the others you're quoting.

Usenet was a very special case. There was no alternative to it: it was the place to talk, and you could browse the directory and find what you wanted, or, if not there, you could add it yourself in a logical place where others would find it (e.g. alt.barney.dinosaur.die.die.die). Now you can talk about a given subject (say, lasers) in quite a few places, so you wouldn't go where there weren't already some people talking about them -- especially not if there wasn't already a bunch of stuff there that came up in search engines, to help you find that site in the first place. You need content these days, not just a venue. It's still possible to start a pure forum from scratch, only much, much harder.
