Well, we don't want to be too aggressive. I mean if somebody stops because of problems with boinc, all we can do is try to make them feel comfortable asking questions - even if a question has been asked a thousand times before. For some of us, this is almost a way of life, but we are a tiny minority. Most people will just install and forget so we have to be able to see things from different perspectives.

The biggest number I recall seeing was 89 active users in a day. But since it's not something we have a way of monitoring easily suppose can't say either if currently 70 is good or bad. Contacting these may help but dunno, think possibly the best is to keep getting new members, however long they stay. Could maybe organise something like a crunchathon to get interest and hopefully have some stay.
Not sure what you mean, but I think the people you mentioned actually left the team at some point - as opposed to just shutting down boinc or not reinstalling but not jumping to another team.
89 sounds kinda low too, but it gives me a frame of reference now so thank you.
