Sportsfilter now has 400 members. After a high membership spike early on, it seems like Spofi has taken a slower, steady path to reach this mark. I'm curious to know what the SportsFilter junta (is ruling elite a better term?) is doing to promote the site and increase membership, especially in today's environment of hundreds of highly specialized sports related websites and message boards.

We're talking amongst ourselves in a virtual smoke-filled room. ...SportsFilter junta (is ruling elite a better term?) When we talked about this before, "SportsMafia" was sort of a consensus, but there isn't anything official.

The other overlords may disagree, but I'm not thinking about promotion yet. There's still a bunch of little things I'd like to get online first, such as RSS feeds for SportsFilter and the Locker Room, a submission queue for member-submitted columns, and more balls in the logo.

Yes, we definitely need more balls. You can never have too many balls.
