There is no script for getting members. Do you mean suggestions for your site on getting more members? I'm sure that's what you mean.
If so, you should post useful things, but you'd have to think about what your site will be about. It could be: computer support, game cheat codes, funny videos, etc.
I don't think you have decided what your site should be about, have you? Think of that first.
I'm also downloading BuddyPress to see if they have included instructions.
