Riding the Downward Spiral - Luring the unwary

So this is our advert in all it's mediocre glory. My co-conspirator and I sweated and laboured over this (in our minds) finely crafted piece of penmanship. We were certain that it would pave the way for the teeming hordes of potential applicants to our welcoming ( possibly lecherous) embrace.
So far we have picked up two members with a third interested (go on, sign up - you know you want to!) bring the total number of brave spacecaptains to 4.
As pleased as we are with this, to get to our target of 20 members it's likely to take us another 8 or so weeks - assuming 2 per week is a sustainable number.
The tricky thing to know is have we, having determined a niche, picked one too narrow? We are in competition for bomber guys with bigger entities like DNS - at what point do you decide to readjust and broaden the focus of a corp for numbers? One week in is certainly too early - but there is always the danger that current members drift away as you can't reach the critical mass needed to follow through with the big ideas sold to recruits.
We're fairly fortunate at the moment - we will be teaming up with a small (but bigger than us!) corp to have some fun over the next few weeks - I'm hoping it will be the start of a beautiful (with homoerotic overtones) relationship between the two corps as we both grow.
So keep an eye on your overviews - you may well soon have the chance to shit up our killboard with the wreckage of our carefully crafted slosh fleets!
