number your forums so more can be place between each hundred
100
200
300
400
then that way more forums can be placed in between
110
120
130
140
etc...

Edit: Oh wait, you did that
That's what I already have at the moment =\

You don't need 300 forums, start small go big.

Create broader categories, and overtime specialize in forums as the population and traffic demands it.

If I saw 300+ forums and 0 topics, or even 100, hell, even 10,000 your forum would look like a ghost town.

I'd rather have 10-20 forums, with 500-1000 posts, that looks active.

No one wants to visit a ghost town of a forum, and you'll kill yourself trying to make it look active.
Well.. I guess I found a flaw of vBulletin then.
I will keep my forums and edit the display order manually one by one.

Not a flaw in vBulletin in the least, it is how your webserver/php is configured.

You can continue with your plan, but I think you're setting yourself up for failure.

@ Zackery yes, I know it's not about numbering his forums we all know it's going to be a ghost town regardless if the php is set up on the server to handle it!

@ PhysXX, when starting a community, it's best to have as few forums as possible. However, you don't want to skimp for the sake of skipping...ensure that you have a solid, basic organizational structure that makes sense.

It appears, with 300-600 forums that you are trying to cover every topic or maybe every game. It sounds like your ready to start 300-600 threads/topics which will give you something to post. If you would like share your site URL in this thread or PM it to me and perhaps I can help make some suggestions. If not I will leave it with this last note... Later, if you do find that you have forum that covers a subject that doesn't need its own forum, your can always merge it with another forum.
