I cannot speak for the owner of this forum (Orioli), but I know that much: he is in the final stage of reconstructing his forums (he has 5 of them). As he told me, he IS going to advertise right after the administrative process is over.
I want to see this forum grow as well. This forum is built based on public feedback (which something you can't say about WebHostingTalk)! It will be a great place once it gets the highest activity.
Advertising any sort of web site on WebHostingTalk costs a dear amount of money. Another problem is that both WHT and HD are about the exact same thing [Some may not feel that this is a problem, however I feel it'd be a mighty risk to invest money advertising on WHT since both web sites in question are about the same thing].
