And we've already pretty much "hit it big". Face it, this forum is themed after a tv show that has gone past its peak. I'm looking at this situation as a member of a small community forum that isn't likely to ever really grow all that large. Very few of the new members we get stick around for longer than a month, even without the bot problems.
Every time there's a re-airing of flcl we'll get some new members. They'll stick around for a while till they find out that flcl isn't really talked about anymore, then leave. The ones that stick around will either be idiots that don't get it or people that want to become part of the community.
Yes, the things I'm suggesting could have a negative impact on growth. In the end, the point I'm trying to make is that we aren't growing very much at all, and the bots are scaring off existing members, AND effecting growth.
