[i]It's a rough outline of what I think is pretty important and helpful running an online coven. Hope this can help a few out.

[b]Guidelines for Inactive and Low Activity Covens[/b]

What your Coven should consist of to be active:

-Active Priest and Priestess (not just one or the other)
-Active Members
-Good Council (experienced and well spoken)
-Quality information and references for members
-Well structured spellbook (regualarly updated)
-Variety of spells and suggestions for beginners through advanced
-Strong, clearly stated rules that imply the following:
No roleplaying
Some sort of Activity policy (# of posts per month etc)

[i]For Priest and Priestess:[/i]

Inquire and encourage! You are the ones who make the decisions.
The ones responsible for how the coven appears and runs.

In your forum section post frequently inquiring about subjects
that your members mention and encourage them to learn more
and gain experience.

If you can... have a list of classes or teachers in divided subjects. Communicate with your Council, they are there to help you. If you set rules, stick to them.

[i]For Council[/i]

Communicate frequently with your Priest and Priestess
Help keep organized forums and on topic threads. Watch for rule violations

[i]For Members[/i]

Be active
Ask questions!
Offer your opinion and advice if there is an opportunity
Mind Priest, Priestess and Council members.

For all of the above...

Respect eachother. Be open minded and understanding.
Help others find a direction to travel in if they are lost.
Keep updating your coven and your information. The more
new you bring in the more everyone learns and grows together.
