Ok, I did not want to touch this again but this is just too much:

It is both or nothing. A forum is what the users of the forum make of it. If
they like it they will stay, if not they won't stay - and there is nothing YOU
can do about it.

Ask any user if he wants to be "mentored" to use the forum - I could think of
some answers you will get. And I can think of some users who will just shrug
their shoulders and go away. Then you can mentor the rest.

Don't you udnerstand that the forum is something WE (Mageia) needs? The users
don't need it - if there is none (or none they like) they will just go their
way. But Mageia needs the forum to gather users who will possibly become
contributors or advocates or spreaders of Mageia.

According to what you write I definitely need to be mentored.
