Yeah, that's the thing, I'm not really sure how I'd go about equalizing it. People like what looks flashy, or what their friends are doing, etc. etc. There's always going to be SOME inequality of attention, but maybe... suggesting that people review the games they've tried out? The playtesting thread was the only way I knew people were playing mine.
Ugh, yeah, I have a feeling it was a stranger with time on their hands, but if it comes up again, I'll let you know.
