We need to incentivise the voting population somehow. Another round of 'vote to win a coupon' that they did about a year ago might help. It's also been a while since they did a banner on the shirt main page.
We plan to start ramping up promotions for voting and other community participation on social channels as well. This weekend is the Emerald City Comicon, so we'll actually be physically interacting with potential new members.
One of the things that I am most excited to tell people about is our community of positive and supportive forum users. You guys really are something special, and the feedback you give artists (new and familiar) is fantastic.
If you're not following us on Facebook and Instagram you should be. We're going to be sharing some fun Comicon photos
