Do respect the rules. Don’t abuse the guidelines. Otherwise, be ready to be banned.

Be active on this forum. Activity breeds activity. If someone posts relevant content, reply and share your thoughts. Do it for every relevant post. When posts have significant number of comments, redditors will join the conversation.
