ouchies, we're not dying, just nopony post... I guess there are already quite a few pony image boards around.
Echan will never be a "successful" website, I think of it as more of a "lets learn about how image boards are run" site, but that doesn't mean it's dead. This time of year is stressful for a lot of ponies.
Give Echan a month. New domain coming, less posting errors and then We'll be best of friends.
