    So I'm tempted to build a forum to fill a gap in a fandom I am a part of. This is not just a money venture for me but is a project I want to make successful personally for the long term...but yes I also plan to monetize it. Its going to be a forum, of small-medium size. But before I jump in I have a few questions:

    Whats the best way to monetize it? I'm thinking AdSense or MediaNet, but are there any other ad companies that you guys recommend? This is a SFW site I'm making so no PlugRush or JuicyAds.

    Also, what are the potential profits for a forum? How well does forum traffic convert?

    I'm googling for tutorials for creating forums and I'm working through it. But I could use a little help. Anyone got tutorials that are exceptionally helpful I should know? Also anyone have forum building experience and monetizing them?
