    I am tempted to start an Android forum! Yes i know there are quite a few very big ones but as an avid Android fan myself and of course a forum lover i am tempted to start one.

    I was wondering how many of you use Android what forums you already use and if you would be interested in helping me get the conversation going on a new Android forum?

    For those interested.
    I was toying with the idea of having it more of a social network site http://www.ultimateandroid.co.uk/ have been looking at this software which is pretty good. Not set it up properly yet just threw a few bits on it to test things.

    You can login with
    demo@gmail.com
    demo123

    I was thinking of using this instead of forum software but am not sure yet. Some prefer forums some prefer social. Was just thinking about how it could be a bit different to other big Android sites out there. Don't think there is a dedicated Android social network out there yet! ;)

    With everyone and his dog (literally) on social media sites. I thought this might be a way to differentiate the new site. Also i would presume most android users that are looking for an android forum or community online would be more likely to be tech savy anyway so the social option would be a good idea.
    It does still have a forum know as topics feature. Go have a play and let me know what you think In the "what do you think" group on the site.
    It might also be a bit easier to get this looking more active as the news feed part pulls in stuff from all over the site etc and is quick and easy to post things. The hardest part of forums especially in the early days is getting content and when you have a forum with few sections and few posts in each it turns new visitors off.

    Anyway like i said the site is not properly set up yet just threw it up to give an idea. Its mobile friendly as well.

    Yes it will be a new forum separate from here. Just toying with the idea at the mo. Because there are many big ones out there, we would need a good amount of people to be on there posting and creating content etc to get it off the ground. As with this place in the early days initial content and active members was very important without that no one else will join or see the value.

    Did you ah sorry! Yeah we have SP which is enough here for now.

    I will keep that in mind if i set this up. Before that i need to know what sort of interest there will be as with only a couple of members posting it will be very hard to get it off the ground.
