This has also affected my stated aim of founding a co-op to take over the admin and moderator responsibilities: with so few active users and so little sense of community, there's no ground for a co-op to grow from. If we had, say, 1000 users, we could have enough people to run a co-op. But we will never get to a bigger user base, unless we move to a bigger hosting plan and open the registrations again.
