Well, not sure if much people have realised noticed but there seems to be more and more people leaving the URPG lately-- yeah, it's going to happen to everyone eventually but still. There also seems to be less and less newer people joining and sticking with it. This may have always been the case but it really seems to be taking it's toll now, a year after it came to BMGf. A lot of people seem to only have time for their Gym (obviously only applying to Gym Leaders), and possibly some other small projects/stories Nationa Park runs/whatever.
What I've gathered is that people on BMG know about the URPG but that's itreally. Other than when it first came here, nothing has really been done to encourage or inform the thousands of members here. Simple things like blogs, announcements and/or people just chatting on various threads could boost the population.
I don't know if everyone would be game for this though. Perhaps people like the smaller amounts of people?
