    I was thinking about making an amateur martial artist, fighter forum. Wanted some input on how good of an idea it would be.

    It's ok having an amateur martial arts forum but the reason most of the amateur martial artists come onto forums is to pick the brain's of the more experienced practitioner, a forum like MAP for instance attracts loads of people at every different level under the sun so you can pretty much guarantee you're going to get an answer to whatever question you ask.
    Even the really really wierd questions (though people may laugh behind your back).

    I guess it depends upon what you want your forum to be geared towards.

    But yeah What is wrong with MAP?. ;)

    Maybe people feel that their are too many threads/people on MAP?

    I personally think that you should go ahead with the forum and tell me when it's made so I can join ;)

    I've had loads of invites to join new forums from students on MAP and to be honest none of them go the distance because they don't have a full established knowldge base as MAP does. I'd say go for it but don't be supprised if it dosn't take off.

    Personally, I wouldn't bother unless you really have a great idea. In terms of amateur fighting, sherdog forums should cover most people's needs.
    IMO- Bullshido, MAP and Sherdog basically cover almost all the bases of martial arts online.

    Just remember the rules about advertising other forums on MAP ;)
