What are the practicalities of running a forum?

So you’ve decided to start a forum, but what do you actually need to do on a regular cadence to keep it healthy and operating?

If you run a forum (or even if you’re just looking into it) what are the daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or annual tasks you do to keep the forum healthy and operational?

Ideally use a bullet format for your reply to keep things clean. For example:


  • Review flags
  • Item B
  • Item C


  • Item D


  • Review metrics
