Re: Thinking about starting a new anime website
I am personally not into anime. And don't ask me how I know this, but 'anime-porn' is actually referred to as hentai and not as anime.
I hate to be pessimistic but I do not think the site would fly. How would you target your audience? I believe CF is so successful because of it's name. I was looking for computer forums, so I typed into my browser computerforums.com, computerforums.net, and computerforums.org. And thats how I found this site.
Unless you have a great domain name like that, or some ad revenue, I don't see how you could successfully reach your demographic. Not only this but I think your site would need to be more then just a forum to attract members and create a good community.
Perhaps having features like a scrapbook where members can put up a couple files and others can critique them, or something to offer your users while the site is in its early days.
