Just curious as to who you think is responsible on a forum to create new topics.

Please choose who you think from the poll :)

There should be a Federal Program established by Congress of Forum Diversity and Promotion to create and maintain topics.

Not only staff is responsible to such job. If regular members are involved too, the community will gain interest on the forum and also this contributes to an increase in activity.

The owner & staff create the foundation of the forum. IMO, it's up to the members to keep the community going.

The owner & staff are there to make sure the forum rules are being followed and perform other duties that regular members do not have the ability to perform. They are also there to interact with members by asking questions in the threads/posts they make. They may or may not create new topics depending on how busy they are with other tasks.

Without the foundation, a house (or in this case a forum) cannot stand alone.

I agree with Jazzy.

In a well populated and functional forum, staff shouldn't need to create new topics. Staff should be there to moderate the threads being started by the members. And if things slow down, they should fill in with new topics. It shouldn't be mainly staff starting topics.
