Yes, there has been fewer players on recently, but that's mostly due to the whole IP/DNS issue that we had a little while back. Since the server wasn't being detected by mcserverlist.net through the normal IP (play.minecraftcc.com), it listed the server uptime at 0%. And mcserverlist.net is one of the primary sources of traffic, so not as many new players have been coming through.
Also, the switch of forums has caused fewer google searches to be redirected to this website, which doesn't help. That should pick back up in another couple weeks though. Google doesn't like major website changes.
We seem to have enough regular players to keep things going though, which is awesome.
