Over the past few weeks it's appeared that activity has sadly died down on here, and I'm wondering what are some ways that we as community members (or even administrators) can do to keep this place alive? I know that by adding new content and topics we can do this, but it only goes so far when trying to get new people to sign up and they see the same few usernames being super active with others being less active.
I've thought about possibly recommending a change in the forum software since the more bigger communities tend to use something way different that seems to offer way more in terms of modules and addons than this one does (although Avery says that he is waiting for Flarum to be released, I'm not sure how much longer the wait will be for that to come out).
Giveaways are great but I feel like they only add a ton of activity for a little bit as people try to enter an then they seem to never come back, although this could be due to the fact that the main website front hasn't really been updated much since there aren't any new articles that are being added on there every week or so anymore sadly. It's hard to correlate the two since they aren't really tied together but could be if someone were to visit the main page and then see the lack of information from FreshAquaria currently.
Does anyone have any other ideas? I like the community (even though it's small) and feel like it seriously could make it if it was more popular and active like other communities are.
