Looked at the forum and saw over 150+ people logged on and almost fell out of my chair.
Looks like things are picking up?

Just some very popular French streamers doing some kind of an event starting this Monday. Expect a few hundreds (maybe even thousands) completely new players for a few days.

But is anything being done to entice them to stay?

It is nice to see that pop I admit.

Maybe, just maybe they will stick around and we FINALLY might get some developments what people have been waiting for.

I wish, but 500 players, or 5k players, does not poof into existence developers that would be placed onto the staff here that would work for free. Everyone needs to just enjoy the spike and cherish it while it lasts. GM posted in other thread that there is no development (SI or otherwise) because of time constraints.

The only realistic option for any software development is to pool $$ together into some gofundme and hire a developer under contract to deliver SI with the direction of staff. This won't happen like most kickstarter type things for such an aged product, so you'd need some angel investor like if one of us neckbeards hit the lottery and forked over the cash. Anything short of a developer being hired at this point is a fool's errand. Enough time has passed that even a slow march of progress would have delivered it by now.
