I have a proposal too to make the site more attractive: I personally think that the Forum structure needs a serious rework to reflect the actual state of the saber hobby.
In particular, if I look back at the last 2 years, ~70% of the topics generating any significant interest and a meaningful discussion were related to open source, Arduino based saber core development (i.e. DIYino, TeensySaber, smooth swing, LSOS, FX-SaberOS). Still these topics are still relegated to a nondescript part of the forum called New Ideas and Technologies. It's time these topics get their own dedicated room so people can better find entries they are interested in.
