Yep, that's pretty much what you should do, make the site more lively, organize unofficial contests, post about your current projects. Donating would also help. Speaking of which, ever since last time the site has been down last week or so, the winning bid on the ad box has consistently been over the point where I can theorically pay for the hosting every month, which I estimated at
a bit over
exactly $0.60/day*. (Of course, I should wait a month to see if it did paid the server, but still, it's pretty cool.) So... thanks @xlibman
? Well, actually, thanks Caleb and Cemetech.
*Something around $0.70/day, if you account for the domain names.
