Just thought of a small suggestion.
At the bottom of the homepage where it lists the amount of posts in the last hour, maybe change that to a wider timeframe, like posts in the last day, week, or even month? At least until a situation ever develops where activity greatly increases on here.
I think it's a bit off-putting to most people when they land there and see zero posts, leading to the impression that this place is completely dead. I've seen some posts in the past on /mlp/ criticizing zero posts per hour thing, actually.
