so this is a thread about how to get more people to return?
why not start a series of contests to make an ad or recriut people... say an AnimeFuel Youtube contest and the one who gets mosts views wins a badge (digital picture), or how about some contest on signatures that people can link to AF forums
and all participants can get a badge that says "we help AF return to former glory" or something along those lines
while the orginasator could get a badge with the text "We will make it happen"
oh and support buttons would be great
my 2 cents
