Janjes beat me to it... I didn't look at the pipe before submitting. But hey, mine is better, anyhow.

The pipe is not so dry anymore...

Now we have stories in the pipe, but sadly lack any interested readers to come by and vote on them. Maybe site changes will help, or maybe there just aren't enough people who care about this place at all to keep it afloat.

I think lack of votes is in part due to the content of the pipe; alot of recent posts don't interest me, but not to the point of voting down either. In the past the pipe has been quite a bit more active (vote-wise), but now that the pipe is filling up, it has the wall-of-text feel, i think its easy to become disinterested and drift away.

That said, I feel its important for there to be an indicator on the homepage as to how many stories are currently in the pipe. Talk of a notification system makes me believe this will be an eventuality.

Actually, there was also a dearth of votes on the pipe for weeks and weeks before janjes dropped-in, when there were just a few stories here.

My mistake. It must just be the lack of visibility of the pipe, combined with the occasional lull in stories. I'd like to find a way to encourage the broader readership to be involved in their content.

Had another idea, i'll drop it in the recent suggestions story.
