    I'm just about to perform a minor upgrade to the forums to facilitate some of those changes in the coming weeks :).

    The party was my father-in-law's, I think he had a good time :D

    I see. Please give your father-in-law a belated 'Many happy returns of the day' from me when you next see him. How about a peek preview of some of the changes that you are going to make?

    A new theme is on it's way, I'm just waiting on the next release of XenForo so that I can code a mobile style at the same time :).

    New members will start trickling in when Windows 8 is released. Right now it's mostly people who are good with computers that are using the preview (or dev RTM) copies, not regular Joes. Once it gets released, the regular Joes will upgrade and be up for a surprise or two, which is when we will start seeing a spike in sign-ups.

    I'm not sure yet - probably two or three, with one similar to the (ex!) Metro UI and one with a more traditional layout - so both crowds will be pleased :).

    Just promote the site on Facebook or Twitter. That always works. You could also sell some unopened copies of Windows 8 on ebay and place the site link somewhere in the item description.
